"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.

Trail Survey - How Are YOU Engaged in the 2012 Elections?

As trail enthusiasts get ready to celebrate Independence Day, TPAC is asking you to take our
survey letting us know how you are engaged in the 2012 elections. 

TPAC believes this is a critically important election at all levels of government.   County commissioners or supervisors often vote on plans that impact the approval of local OHV parks or trail systems.   State officials have authority over state-run OHV programs.   Congress has budget authority over federal land agencies as well as creating laws that govern those programs.   The White House appoints directors to federal agencies and issues policy directives that impact how those departments approach public land access.

Thanks in advance taking this survey and for being engaged in the 2012 elections.


  1. I am running for Montana House of Representative District 70. I am one of the 12 board members of Citizens for Balanced Use working to preserve multiple use recreation, active forest management and responsible resource development on our federally managed public lands. I believe private property rights is the cornerstone of our nation and must be protected. Non native predator introduction is slowly destroying agriculture and hunting opportunities in Montana. Montana Fish Wildlife and Parks has pursued an agenda of removing people from the land and their private property by the comments they submit to the federal land management agencies on proposed projects. I will work in legislature to get spending under control, reduce regulation and the tax burden on businesses.
