Forest Service travel management-related closures and over-regulation by the EPA often impact trail use on public lands. Tens of thousands of miles of historic trails and roads on public lands have been closed over the last 4 years to OHV users. Trail enthusiasts need pro-OHV advocates in the U.S. Senate and U.S House of Representatives to champion responsible access to public lands.
The Trail Political Action Committee (TPAC) was founded as the first national non-partisan political action committee dedicated solely to championing responsible off-highway vehicle recreation on designated roads, trails, and areas on public lands through the electoral and legislative processes.
TPAC believes that "all land-use decisions are political decisions." The TPAC strategic goal is simple. TPAC will contribute to pro-access politicians who will support OHV recreation friendly legislation and oppose anti-access proposals and agency over regulation.
