An Intrinsic Love for The Trails

DTC Today:

DTC is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization. All Board members are volunteers so all donations and funding fully support trail issue resolution and improvements. Board members individually, and as representatives of DTC, have excellent relationships with those representing the owners of land upon which our trails have been built. Funding for trail work is often provided by those land owners and DTC helps in the planning and implementation of those funded projects.

Where issues surface that have the potential to impact large numbers of trail users, DTC is committed to working with stakeholders to develop positive solutions. DTC also acts as a coordination point to enable the community to get involved.

At this time, there is no cost to join DTC. Members must be recognized trail use organizations in and around the Coachella Valley. A member organization need not be a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, but must have a similar social structure with a mission statement, bylaws, goals and membership exceeding twenty individuals.


Why Join?

Trail users generally have very similar opinions about trail use and maintenance and strong appreciation for the terrain through which trails travel. Where there are differences in opinions, the DTC provides an opportunity for discussion between members, some of whom are well versed in legal trail issues. Ultimately agreement on common positions allow DTC, as one large voice, to influence government agency and private owner decisions around land use. If necessary and justified, the DTC has resources to pursue judicial recourse on the most significant decisions adversely and unfairly affecting trail use.
