"Our mission is to promote and protect human-powered recreation in the backcountry of the Gunnison Valley"

Silent Tracks, a 501c3 non-profit organization, was established in 2015. We provide a voice for human-powered backcountry recreationists in the Gunnison Valley. We represent human-powered users of all ages, including hikers, xc skiers, mountain bikers, backpackers, photographers, anglers, wildlife viewers, and many others.

Silent Tracks follows four guiding core values/principles


We ADVOCATE for land managers to make decisions that are sustainable, balance the concerns of users and ensure the quiet recreation and enjoyment of public lands.


We COLLABORATE and engage with diverse groups of government agencies, non-profits, and other stakeholder organizations to ensure the best management outcomes in policy-making decisions.


We EDUCATE the community through outreach, events, and other programs to foster an appreciation for the balanced use of backcountry in the Gunnison Valley.


We work to PRESERVE natural habitats and opportunities for solitude, including the backcountry soundscape, by minimizing disturbance of the environment.
