2020 has been a wild year, and here at MTB Missoula we've been rolling with the punches. This global pandemic has illustrated more clearly than ever the need for access to wild places to keep up our physical, emotional, and community health.
And that is why we're nearing the end of this year with optimism.
This year saw brand new trail building on Mount Dean Stone and the improvement of access points and trailheads. We saw the huge success of the Missoula Mammoths youth cycling program in spite of Covid-related restrictions, and MTB Missoula volunteers kept the trails open even though large group events were put on hold. And as we look forward to another singletrack project on Mount Dean Stone and a new trailhead there, we've been challenged by some of our incredible community partners to meet a $12,500 matching challenge for #GivingTuesday.
We understand that uncertainty remains, and that not everyone can give in the way they have in the past. But we hope that you will consider continuing to support the advocacy, trail building, and stewardship work of MTB Missoula as we continue to make Missoula better with trails in 2021.
