For 2018, we’re happy to partner once again with the Continental Divide Trail Coalition.
The CDTC’s goal to protect the countless breathtaking natural resources along the 3,100-mile trail is a noble one, and it’s work we believe in supporting. In 2017, this ever-growing organization was the conduit for nearly 39,000 hours of trail maintenance from a community of over 1,000 volunteers. That’s within range of nearly one-million dollars’ worth of work. And this is just one example of the myriad ways the CDTC focuses on safeguarding the future of this route that travels through public lands from Canada to Mexico.
Additionally, this year we’re pleased to have collaborated with the CDTC on a special run of small Drawstring Stuff Sacks to commemorate the 40-year anniversary of the trail. These ultralight and supremely useful drawstring bags are perfect organizational tools in any pack, and they’ll only be available from the CDTC store, included with memberships and at events throughout the year.
Head to www.continentaldividetrail.org to learn more about the organization, and if you haven’t, consider contributing to their mission as well.
