Review of 2021 Achievements - and a look toward Summer 2022
It's been snowing lately and hopefully you're getting outside and enjoying it. While our trails are resting under a blanket of white, it seems like a good time to reflect on the spectacular success MTG saw in 2021, and to look toward 2022's trail season.
In 2021, MTG accomplished a LOT. A whole lot. And you, our volunteers, get the credit! Here are some of our greatest accomplishments for 2021:
MTG voted MVR's Project of the Year
AnMancos Trails Group is honored to have been recognized by Mancos Valley Resources, our fiscal sponsor, as 2021's Sponsored Project of the Year. MVR sponsors 14 well-deserving projects in Mancos so we are especially proud that we receive this honor amongst such worthy company.
As an all-volunteer non-profit, Mancos Trails Group couldn't accomplish what we have without the fiscal sponsorship we get from MVR. MVR allows us to focus on what we do best - build, maintain and support our local non-motorized trails. Thank you, MVR, for everything you do for us, and for this wonderful award.

Have your say! What would you like to see in the new Town of Mancos Trails Master Plan?
In 2012, the Town of Mancos created a Trails Master Plan to help provide community access to important locales in the area. The Trails Master Plan is what inspired many of our biggest projects including the Town Trail System, the Mancos Spur Trail, the Aqueduct trails and the new Chicken Creek trails.
This year, the Town is working on a new Trails Master Plan and is seeking your input. Now is your chance to voice your opinion about what you'd like to see in the new Town of Mancos Trails Master Plan.

It's not too early to start thinking about summer!
Looking towards Summer 2022, MTG has a lot planned. Here are some things to keep in mind as you start dreaming of warm days out on the trail.
Our popular Mancos Spur Trail Adoption program will be running again in 2022. Are you interested in giving back to your trails but not able to come out for our scheduled group workdays? Adopting a segment of the Mancos Spur Trail may be perfect for you! Have a look at our adoption page for more details and contact us at email@example.com if you're interested!
New trail building will continue in 2022! We have 8 miles to go to complete the Aqueduct system. Some will be hand built and some by machine. We’ll need volunteers and money. Help out in in any way you can! And we have only 1.5 miles to go to complete the Lost Chicken Trail. Be on the lookout for work days in the cool pines at Chicken Creek - trail work days are tentatively scheduled for the second Saturday of the month from April-November (with a few exceptions). Keep your eye on our events page and our news page for updates. We will also be sending out emails & updating social media as our workdays are finalized.
We hope to offer social hikes and bike rides again this summer - if you're interested in hosting events like this, let us know!
Finally, we are always looking for volunteers to help us behind the scenes. Whether it's joining our Board of Directors or chairing a committee (examples of committees include Tools, Work Days, Volunteer Coordination, Website, Social Media, etc.), there is an opportunity for you to help Mancos Trails Group achieve even more in 2022!
