A public trail development and land protection initiative

The Trek Foundation was established in 2021 to protect land, develop trail systems for public use, and grant more riders access to great places to ride. The trail systems funded by The Trek Foundation will remain open, protected, and free for all to use.

In addition to providing communities and mountain bikers with new and better trail networks, grants from The Trek Foundation help protect the surrounding land from development. These protected spaces will continue in their natural state, homes to vegetation and wildlife for generations to come.

This initiative is one of many projects that support Trek’s broader mission to change the world by getting more people on bikes. In its first year, The Trek Foundation funded four trail projects (and we’re actively pursuing more locations). This is only the beginning of a long-standing commitment to protecting lands, investing in great places to ride, and promoting a future with more bikes and more access for every rider.

Trek Trails at Harmon Canyon

The Trek Trails at the 2,123-acre Harmon Canyon Preserve span 6 miles of mountain bike trails throughout the canyon and will help ensure the protection of oak groves, stream crossings, and breathtaking views of Southern California mountain ranges, coastlines, and Channel Islands National Park.

Trek Trails at Verde Valley

Located at Oak Creek School in Cornville, Arizona, the Verde Valley trails will be home to the Verde Valley Wheel Fun (FUN) program. FUN, an after school mountain bike program provides, in many cases, underserved children the opportunity to learn to ride a bicycle for the first time and discover the joys of mountain biking.

Trek Trails at Larsen Meadow

Located in Los Padres National Forest in the Santa Ynez mountains, the Larsen Meadow trails were destroyed by the Whittier wildfire of 2017. The Trek Foundation’s contribution will rebuild 10 miles of mountain bike trails and preserve 250 acres that serve the community as a place where over 10,000 children visit every year to learn about natural sciences and experience the outdoors.

These trails and forthcoming projects supported by The Trek Foundation meet a set of funding criteria designed to ensure a meaningful, long-lasting contribution to the community, its riders, and the planet.

1. The project will help preserve the land in perpetuity
2. The trails will be open to the public and free to use
3. A commitment to activate the trails with the local community
