Mammoth Trails - History
Project Description: In September of 2006, following up on its presentation of the “Mobility Plan Resources Report” in August of that same year, MLTPA proposed the formation of Mammoth Trails as a "...confederation of user groups and clubs organized and maintained to promote the pursuit of each group's recreation mission and, importantly, to extend the necessary stewardship to the physical resources upon which these activities take place."
An ad hoc committee of the Mammoth Lakes Tourism and Recreation Commission was subsequently formed and, working together with MLTPA, produced a report for consideration and discussion at MLTPA's “Strategic Conference and Public Meeting” in November, 2006. Consistent with MLTPA's original vision, but elaborated upon and fleshed out by the participation of user groups and Town of Mammoth Lakes staff, the Mammoth Trails Charter established a confederation of user groups seeking to "...effectively and inclusively create and enhance recreation for our community." The final drafting of the Mammoth Trails Charter was completed in the summer of 2008, click here to download the current version.
The Mammoth Trails Charter commits the confederation of user groups to the following: engaging with trails and public access issues and events; providing timely, reliable outdoor recreation amenity information; serving as a volunteer resource for stewardship; and enhancing and protecting outdoor recreation amenities while fostering strong relationships between user groups and increasing awareness and understanding of multiple uses.
The ten original signatories to the Mammoth Trails Charter are listed below. If your club or organization is interested in signing, please contact us at email@example.com for details.
