The Meadow Vista Trails Association (MVTA) was formed in April 1995 as a membership based IRC §501organization dedicated to the establishment, improvement, and maintenance of multi use trails between Christian Valley, and Colfax. We encourage public trail access through the community for use by the community for horseback riding, walking, hiking and biking. Five years ago an Equestrian Arena was built at the end of Combie Rd, as well as an Agility Dog park and Picnic Area. Membership gains you access to this facility.
MVTA has been able to obtain easements from property owners to secure many of the trails in the area. We were also actively involved in the establishment of the Sugar Pine trail that follows the perimeter of the Winchester Community. Our members act as agents of the County and are solely responsible for new construction and maintenance of our many trails.
Some of the organized work completed last year include: An extensive trail network on the Simpson Ranch, trails through Walgra Meadows, we opened a section of the trail in Bear River County Park, work on the Sugar Pine trails around the Winchester Community, installed new sand in the arena and round pen at the Arena and on the Esoteric property, and the Cerro Vista trail.
General Meetings are held @ 6:30 the fourth Tuesday of every month normally at Mountain Mikes Pizza. Please be our guest at the next meeting. We want you to enjoy and use the community you live in. Look for our booth at Pioneer Day as well!
