Any trail


Any time




Join us in June for the 9th Annual Summer Trails Challenge, winner of the 2023 Bozeman Choice Award for the best Summer Sports/Recreation event of the summer!

This year, GVLT is going bigger than ever—help us raise $90,000 for our trail systems!


  1. Local businesses that want to protect the quality of life in southwest Montana contribute to our Summer Trails Challenge Sponsor Match Pool.
  2. Community members run, bike, walk, or roll on area trails. Any trail, any time—no registration required!
  3. Participants log their miles on the Summer Trails Challenge website (right here!).
  4. Every mile logged unlocks $1 from the Sponsor Match Pool for GVLT’s trail program this year.

That’s right! GVLT receives $1 for each mile logged during this month-long, community-wide celebration—funds that go directly to build and maintain our world-class community trails system. The Summer Trails Challenge is for everyone, regardless of income, schedule, or fitness level. It doesn’t require any special apps or devices. It’s just people getting outside, on their own time, to support community trails.
