Colorado’s Holy Cross Trail was honored by Michelin North America as one of the BFGoodrich Outstanding Trails.
Off-road enthusiasts and members of the Big Horn Jeep club were in attendance as BFGoodrich presented a grant to the club’s president. The grant will be used to preserve the scenic off-roading trail.
Michelin worked in conjunction with Tread Lightly! and United Four Wheel Drive Associations (UFWDA) to select the Holy Cross trail “because of its beauty and challenge that it presents to off-road enthusiasts,” rating it an overall 8 out of 10.
“Holy Cross is a scenic and challenging high mountain trail with its tough terrain, and offers beautiful views that are second to none,” said Joe Mazur, BFGoodrich light truck brand category manager. “We’re honored to join with the Big Horn Jeep club to help in the conservation efforts for this amazing off-road park, and are extremely proud of the work that this club does year-round to keep this trail open for use.”
Other trails were named to the program for 2010 include Rausch Creek in Pennsylvania, Drummond Island in Michigan, Yacolt in Washington and Johnson Valley in California.
