The VMUTS organization dedicates a significant portion of their time and resources to the critical aspects of trail development and maintenance. Ensuring the sustainability of the trail system as a resource and ecosystem is of the utmost importance in order to protect local fish and wildlife and maintain approval for the use of crown lands.
