We hold the future of off-road recreation in our hands.


Here in the Pacific Northwest, whether we walk, pedal, paddle or ride, everyone can travel within and explore the great outdoors. To answer the call of the wild we have a network of public trail systems and designated use areas. This is a freedom we are fortunate to have.

So where does the Emerald Trail Riders Association fit into this big picture? We represent the Off-Highway Vehicle (OHV) users. Motorized trail riders. Though we are primarily a dirt-bike club, we recognize the need to partner with all classes of OHVs to benefit and sustain our combined trail systems. These designated OHV areas provide us with the unique experience of trail riding, adventure, camping with family and friends and a healthy escape from everyday routine.

Our purpose is to sustain and improve our trail systems through proactive work both on the ground and on the desktop.
