The Colorado Association of 4WD Clubs is a not-for-profit (contributions are not tax deductible) umbrella organization for four wheel drive clubs in the state of Colorado. We began in 1968. We are members of the Colorado Off-Highway Vehicle Coalition, and United Four Wheel Drive Associations and are voting members of Tread Lightly! Annually we donate to Mountain States Legal Foundation and to the Colorado Off-Highway Vehicle Coalition Legal Defense Fund in order to support legal actions that maintain public access to public lands. To support the education of our young four wheelers, we give out an annual Scholarship toward secondary education. The Colorado Association is more than a financial supporter of public access. Annually our clubs do over 10,000 hours of volunteer work on the campgrounds, picnic grounds, hiking trails, and 4WD roads of Colorado. We also participate in the National Trails Day event in June by taking a group of physically challenged people on a 4WD trip into the Rocky Mountains for the day. Many of our Member Clubs with the support of our Associate (Business) Members put on annual events. . The Association meets four times annually, once each quarter, to conduct our association business and to share information about upcoming events. Annually, we also vote for the associations Four Wheeler of the Year, and Club of the Year for an individual(s) and club(s) that have shown outstanding support for motorized recreation.

ALSO – Weather Permitting on Sunday, April 22. If we can garner 3 or more interested folks planning to be in the area through Sunday, trail leaders are ready to take a group through the EAGLE ROCK trail (our clubs’ adopted trail just above Colorado Springs on Gold Camp Road). Or we may decide to go instead to CHINAMAN GULCH near Buena Vista. This is about a two-hour trek from the Springs, but is well worth the trip if the weather is cooperating. The decision about which trail to attempt will be made during the delegates meeting. A signup sheet for either or both trails will be available at the registration desk, along with Sunday morning meeting place(s) and time(s).
We look forward to seeing you at the Delegate’s meeting!
