As you may know, grooming and maintenance of the Silver Crest Trails is accomplished through a combination of donated funds from our trail users & supporters, and from a recreational trails grant administered through the Montana Department of Fish, Wildlife & Parks. Each year we reapply for the grant, and a critical part of the application (and receiving funding) is providing letters of support from our trail users.
Please, if you can take a few minutes, send us your letter of support. It need not be long or wordy – just a short paragraph will do. Let us & the Recreational Trails Grant committee know just how the Silver Crest Trails are important to you, and why we need to keep them funded.
You may send your letter either by postal mail or email to:
Silver Crest Trails Association – 665 Wilson Butte Road, Great Falls, MT 59405 silvercresttrails@
Please send your letter by Feb 15, 2015.
