Our Philosophy

 

 While officially established in 2004, the South Star Trails have been around for many years.  

 

01.

To encourage area residents to participate in affordable year round recreational activities

02.

To preserve South Star Recreation Trails as a semi-primitive non-motorized recreational area

03.

To represent members and the area in dealings with all levels of government and industry for the protection and enhancement of non-motorized recreational interests.
