"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 Endorses Roy Blunt for Senate in MO


The Trail Political Action Committee (TPAC) is proud to announce its official endorsement and support for Roy Blunt who is running for re-election to the U.S. Senate in Missouri.

Don Amador, Founder of The Trail PAC, said, “Senator Blunt believes it is the government’s role to provide recreational access to public lands for all Missourians.  Today, the federal government continues to promulgate onerous rules and regulations that restrict public access for hunters, fishermen, and trail enthusiasts.”

“Senator Blunt is well-known and respected for his efforts to hold federal regulators accountable.  Outdoor enthusiasts need to send Blunt back to D.C. to continue his work on their behalf,” Amador concluded.

Senator Blunt voted for S1040 in committee, more commonly known as the RIDE Act.  It requires the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) to postpone proposed mandates for off-road, side-by-side vehicles (ROVs) until those proposals have been studied and evaluated by government scientific organizations.  That legislation followed the CPSC's rejection of a bipartisan Senate request, signed by Blunt, that the CPSC work cooperatively with the ROV industry and other stakeholders.

The Trail Political Action Committee (TPAC) works to elect federal candidates who will support legislation and policy that promotes and protects responsible off-highway vehicle recreation on public and private lands
