Amwell Valley Trail Association

    About Us and Membership Form


                                    Amwell Valley Trail Association, Inc.

                                                                   Purpose & Goal

           The Amwell Valley Trail Association (A.V.T.A.) was organized in 1985 by a
     group of concerned residents desirous of preserving our rural atmosphere and
     enjoying hiking, riding and cross country skiing.

            It is a self-policing organization with 
rules of conduct to which its members
     must adhere. The basic premise of these rules is that the rights of the property
     owners who allow us to use their land must be respected.

            We have established and maintain many miles of beautiful trails. We have
     found the majority of property owners we have contacted for permission to hike
     and ride look upon our Association and its aims favorably.

            As a responsible organization, we are covered by a substantial General
     Liability policy for property damage and bodily injury caused by members on
     land where we have permission to ride and hike.

           Membership dues are used to pay for insurance, tractor maintenance, trail
     signs, public relations, supplies, postage, two annual membership parties, and
     legal fees.

          The A.V.T.A. has an annual
Fall Trail Pace Ride with all proceeds used to benefit
Scholarship Fund and donations to other not-for-profit organizations.
