"All trail-access decisions are political decisions"

The Trail Political Action Committee (TPAC) was founded as the first national non-partisan political action committee dedicated solely to championing responsible off-highway vehicle recreation on designated roads, trails, and areas on public lands through the electoral and legislative processes.
The TPAC tactical goal is to target key races using state-of-the art real-time analysis where there is a tough election and the pro-access candidate needs some extra support to help to defeat their opponent.
TPAC is needed to counter the anti-access special interests in Washington DC who have long ago figured that contributing to closure-oriented politicians is how they will accomplish their goal of restricting OHV access on federal lands.
TPAC is ready to stand in that political breach to stop the flow of anti-access politicians into the Capital. TPAC will work hard to reverse that trend so that pro-access legislators will exist as the majority in Congress and the White House.

TPAC's Key Congressional Races in 2012

Dear OHV Trail Voter,

As this year comes to a close, the Trail Political Action Committee wants to thank you for helping us get launched in 2011. 

TPAC supporters and our access friends have a lot to be proud of in 2011.  Today, there are pro-trail legislators in the House of Representatives and U.S. Senate who are fighting for our access rights.  Some have introduced legislation to address the closure of historic roads and trails by federal land agencies. 

Other pro-trail politicians have introduced legislation to stop taxpayer funding of eco-lawsuits filed by green anti-access groups to severely restrict or ban OHV recreation.  

Elected officials in the House of Representatives and the U.S. Senate are seeking to address the abuse of the OHV event permitting process by some federal agents.

As TPAC prepares its official questionnaire for Congressional races and the Presidency, we wanted to share a quick note about some key races in the 2012 election cycle.

TPAC’s goal in 2012 is to help send pro-trail reinforcements to Congress with a special focus on the U.S. Senate.

TPAC is currently reviewing key races in Utah, Wisconsin, Montana, Nevada, Arizona, and Michigan.

It’s going to take a lot of support from the OHV trail voter in 2012 to help TPAC counter the green PACs with their almost unlimited resources.  However, TPAC believes that YOU are ready to stand up against their trail-closure agenda and help us engage them in the political arena.

Please donate to help TPAC hit the trail hard in 2012.

Thanks for your support of TPAC’s effort to get the OHV trail voter engaged.

Best regards,


Don Amador, Founder
The Trail Political Action Committee
