Teaching Kids to Overcome Obstacles

on the Trail and in Life!

Welcome to TrailsforYouth.Org!

TYO En Español


“I love riding a bike, it’s so much fun and I saw a turtle!”

We hear this all the time. Whether kids are riding a bike on a dirt trail or on the trail of life, we provide opportunities for them to be healthier and more confident in their abilities.

TrailsforYouth.Org mission is to mentor at-risk youth and provide opportunities for all children to benefit from a healthy, active lifestyle through safe outdoor experiences.

TYO Vision is to significantly improve the social-emotional and physical health of every youth we serve

Without our programs, there are some kids that simply would not get outside to enjoy fresh air, a bike ride, hike, kayak, fish or just explore and connect to their natural surroundings. As one recent camper said,

“this is way more fun than playing video games!”

Our programs focus on getting all youth outdoors and active. We have levels of involvement for everyone from a variety of backgrounds — find one that works for you!

  • At-risk Youth Nature Rides
  • Weekend Trailblazer Clubs
  • Youth Mountain Bike Racing
  • Camps, Classes, Epics
