The HMT are some of the best maintained trails you will experience. They have full time staff and equipment on standby to keep the trails up to the highest standard. Land leases are paid to land owners and washouts, trees, rocks, and more are removed and addressed almost immediately. Because of this, there is a cost - the revenue from trail passes allows the HMT to maintain, expand, and grow the sport. HMT helps drive sales and support for the manufactures of the machines that we all enjoy on these trails. Let's work together and do our part to help keep this sport alive and continuing to grow!
