GVLT needs 10,000 miles logged to hit goal in Bozeman Trails Challenge

Since 1990, GVLT has collaborated with the City of Bozeman and dozens of public and private organizations to expand the Main Street to the Mountains system to over 80 miles of trails. These trails are used by commuters, runners, bikers, birdwatchers, dog walkers, and stargazers, and help make the Gallatin Valley the best place to live under the Big Sky! To celebrate this work and help provide critical funds to continue it, GVLT is excited to be hosting the first annual Bozeman Trails Challenge.

Since June 4th, community members have been recording how far they walk, hike, or bike on area trails. They’ve been logging their miles on the GVLT website,

For every mile reported, GVLT receives $1 from the Trails Challenge Fund, supported by dozens of community businesses. With $20,000 pledged, our goal is to log 20,000 miles by June 21st. $1 for 1 mile. It is that easy.

As of today, there have been over 800 entries on the logging form for a total of 9,287 miles. We have one week left to log the remaining miles. The money raised will help GVLT expand the trail system and protect the quality of life our community treasures.
