Preserving, maintaining, and promoting more access to trails and outdoor activities.
The Trail Case helps support the efforts of local NPOs who share a common goal: to preserve and promote more access to trails, whether it involves hiking, biking, or other outdoor activities. In addition to supporting organizations that encourage our youth to spend more time outdoors and in nature, we also support groups that help maintain trails.
All donations from the Trail Case will go towards qualified organizations and their programs, after completing an application process with JINS.

Access4Bikes’ mission is to motivate and empower Marin mountain bikers to act in their own self-interest, to get fair and responsible access to our public trails, and to preserve the experience of trail riding for future generations. Ales and Trails is one of the biggest events of the year, where they celebrate bike culture by featuring the builders, the ride leaders, and the fun it is to be a mountain biker. The kids race is often the biggest feature of the day.
