Located in Clark, Wyo., Morrison Trail was honored this past weekend by BFGoodrich® Tires as one of the 2011 Outstanding Trails. Off-road enthusiasts and members of the Magic City 4-Wheelers, Inc. were in attendance as BFGoodrich Tires presented a grant of $4,000 to the club. The grant will be used to preserve the scenic off-highway trail system and continue conservation efforts for one of America’s most beautiful areas for off-roading.
Morrison Trail, in Wyoming’s Shoshone National Forest, offers various types of terrain including arid canyons, alpine forests, high mountain meadows and small lakes at 10,000 feet. Hitting the trail shortly after it opens in mid-July is a gift as off-road enthusiasts will have the pleasure of experiencing a carpet of beautiful wildflowers in the meadows. The panoramic views from almost every part of the trail are breathtaking and inspiring.
Magic City 4-Wheelers, Inc. is a family oriented OHV club. The club organizes annual race rallies, monthly trail rides and trail maintenance trips. Magic City 4-Wheelers always follow the Tread Lightly! trail ethic and educate others when possible regarding proper trail ethic. All club members are also members of the Montana 4X4 Association and UFWDA.
About the Outstanding Trails Program
The BFGoodrich® Tires Outstanding Trails program was established in 2006 to raise awareness for responsible use and preservation of off-road trails while providing aid in the trails’ conservation efforts. Through 2010, the Outstanding Trails program has recognized 24 off-road trails and 24 clubs across 16 states and two in Canada. The program has provided more than $90,000 in grants in support of the various trails conservation efforts.
Both Tread Lightly!® and UFWDA are non-profit organizations dedicated to responsible and ethical outdoor recreation. BFGoodrich Tires collaborated with these two groups to select the finest off-road trails, and will continue to work with these organizations on restoration and education initiatives.
