What we won't publish:

What is the policy of American Trails on editorials and opinions?

We support the free exchange of ideas. Because American Trails is the only national organization supporting all trails activities, it is our goal to find common ground among all outdoor recreation interests. We believe that by working together we can gain more support for public lands and healthy communities. At the same time, we want to foster honest critiques as well as new ideas for trails.

If you have questions contact American Trails at (530) 547-2060 or email us at

Please send all material either by email to or mail us a CD formatted for "all computers" (not CD-RW) to: American Trails, P. O. Box 491797, Redding, CA 96049-1797.
