BFGoodrich, maker of some of the best off-roading tires available on the market today has recently announced that it will partner with Tread Lightly and United Four Wheel Drive Associations to launch the Outstanding Trails program. The Outstanding Trails program will highlight some of the best off-road trails in the country and will be dedicated to the responsible use and preservation of the off-road trails that we all like to enjoy.
With the popularity of off-roading exploding, BFGoodrich thought that it was important to bring some of the best trails to the attention of many off-roaders who may not be familiar with some of them. The program will choose five of the best trails in North America which can range from mountainous terrain to desert trails. All of the trails that are chosen are deemed to be unique and offer the drivers a challenging and enjoyable off-road adventure.
The trails that were chosen this year are five of the best off-roading trails out there. First is Black Bear Pass which is located near Ouray, Colorado. This trail offers beautiful scenery located in the San Juan Mountains. Next is Pyeatt Draw which is a scenic and thrilling trail located in Payson, Arizona. The third trail is Hell’s Revenge which features slick sandstone slopes located in Moab, Utah. Next on the list is Naches Pass which is also known as the Longmire Wagon Train trail lets off-roaders drive over some of the most beautiful mountains in Naches, Washington.
The final trail on the list is Upper Tellico OHV Area, Trail #4 which is located in the Nantahala National Forest in North Carolina where Tennessee, South Carolina and Georgia meet.
The program runs from May through October, BFGoodrich will host several events designed to highlight the different aspects of each trail as well as educate off-roaders on how to responsibly use the off-road trails. BFGoodrich will also give a grant to a selected off-road clubs to help with the costs of associated with conservation of many off-road trails. This is a program that will help keep off-road trails open for years.
