La Veta Trails is a 501(c)(3) non-profit established in 2015. We are an all-volunteer organization with a Board of Directors that provides leadership for building a community trail system for all ages and all abilities. Our mission is to develop 10 miles of interconnected recreational trails.

Get Involved


We will have three types of volunteer activities: Scheduled Volunteer Work Days, Trail Steward and Events. Since 2015, La Veta Trails volunteers logged over 1000 hours on trails, events and growing the organization. Whether you have a little or a lot of time, the community trail system needs you. Visit our web-site for a Volunteer Form.

You can help by joining or making a tax-deductible donation. 100% of all money we receive is reinvested in trails.
