Who We Are
Passionate equine fans
Mountain Trekkers is a local chapter of the Colorado Back Country Horsemen and the Back Country Horsemen of America (BCHA). We are a devoted group of equestrians and horse, mule, and burro lovers who advocate for equestrian access to public lands and assist with trail maintenance to keep the trails open for all user groups.
We want to connect you to other passionate equestrians!
Are you new to trail riding or backcountry riding and want to connect to an experienced mentor? Are you a backcountry-savvy equestrian who wants to encourage others to hit the trails? Email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will connect you to a local trail partner!
What We Do
Provide social & educational opportunities
The Mountain Trekkers Chapter works in Colorado Parks & Wildlife’s Area 8 which includes the Holy Cross Wilderness, Eagles Nest Wilderness, Hunter-Fryingpan Wilderness, Flat Tops Wilderness, and the White River National Forest. We plan trail maintenance projects with management agencies such as the United States Forest Service and Colorado Parks & Wildlife, host equestrian social events, host equestrian education events, and advocate for trail riders–all while having ridiculous amounts of fun.
We welcome riders of all types, ages, and interests. Not a rider but interested in supporting trail maintenance or equestrian trail advocacy? We want you, too!

The Wilderness Rider Competition was suspended in 2023 due to lack of interest.
I know, we can't believe it either!
If you ride in any of the 7 wilderness areas that our boundary touches, send your photos to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will share them on social media.
