Being “silent” is a generally a virtue Silent Tracks supports; however, there are times when being “silent” is counter-productive. Quiet users are the largest user group on National Forest lands; however, we are the most under-represented group of users and lack the well-organized infrastructure and extensive financial backing motorized users have enjoyed and exploited for years.
So, it’s time to take steps to make sure ALL quiet users are fairly represented and that we have quiet places to recreate now and for years to come. Silent Tracks is committed to its mission and ensuring a legacy for future generations because Quiet Places Matter! Get Involved and help us “protect and promote human-powered recreation in the backcountry of the Gunnison Valley”.
What can one person do? A lot… the “power of the few” has already been demonstrated by the Gang of Nine. The future of quiet use recreation depends on YOUR support and involvement NOW!
