    BFGoodrich Tires Announces Five Outstanding Trails for 2010

    * BFGoodrich celebrates five year anniversary of Outstanding Trails program
    * The five 2010 selected trails cover the map from Southern California to Pennsylvania

    MOAB, Utah – April 1, 2010 – BFGoodrich Tires has announced the five trails selected for its Outstanding Trails program at a presentation held in Moab, Utah during the Easter Jeep Safari. Celebrating the program’s five year anniversary in 2010, the Outstanding Trails program has recognized 19 trails, donating more than $70,000 to clubs across the United States and Canada. The program was established to raise awareness for responsible use, and preservation of, off-road trails while providing aid in the trails’ conservation efforts.

    In collaboration with United Four Wheel Drive Associations (UFWDA) andTread Lightly!, BFGoodrich Tires is proud to present the 2010 Outstanding Trails:

    o Rausch Creek, Pa.
    o Drummond Island, Mich.
    o Yacolt, Wash.
    o Johnson Valley, Calif.
    o Holy Cross, Colo.

    “The five trails that have been selected this year are well-deserving of the recognition and we’re excited to have them part of the Outstanding Trails family,” said Joe Mazur, light-truck marketing manager, BFGoodrich Tires. “We look forward to honoring the clubs at selected events throughout the year and helping them maintain and preserve these beautiful off-road trails for everyone to enjoy.”

    The five 2010 Outstanding Trails cover the map from the Mojave Desert in Southern California to the green forests of Pennsylvania. The trails were narrowed down and selected by UFWDA, Tread Lightly! and BFGoodrich Tires.

    BFGoodrich Tires will host several events honoring each of the five trails beginning in June and running through October. The events will highlight the beauty and uniqueness of each trail, as well as educate off-road enthusiasts on the responsible use of trails. A grant will also be awarded to each of the clubs associated with the trails to help conserve the trail’s beauty.

    Following is a closer look at each trail:

    * Rausch Creek provides a fun, legal place for 4x4 off-road clubs and organizations to go "wheeling." The off-road park consists of 1,700 acres of easy, intermediate and hard trails. Rocks, bowls, hills, the glacial "Rock Creek", club-friendly trails and free on-site camping combine to make Rausch Creek a unique 4x4 destination.

    * Drummond Island has some of the most scenic and rugged off-road trails in the state of Michigan. With more than 117 miles of trail in a closed loop system, Drummond Islands’ off-road trails provide a wide range of riding opportunities. Surrounded by the waters of Lake Huron, in a true wilderness setting, the riding experience is un-paralleled by any other place in Michigan. With abundant wild life, lush vegetation and sweeping vistas, the trails on Drummond Island are truly special.

    * Yacolt Burn is a new 4x4 trail that expects to have approximately 25 miles of dedicated off-roading [we will add more info prior to distribution, awaiting info].

    * Johnson Valley is home to King of the Hammers, the ultimate desert race. Johnson Valley offers a varied landscape for the off-road driver.
    It is punctuated by steep red rocky mountains, rolling hills, open valleys, dry lake beds and sandy washes. Elevations range from 4,600-feet at Hartwell Hills to 2,300-feet at Melville Dry Lake. The area’s beautiful vegetation consists of creosote scrub, annual grasses, wild flowers and Joshua Trees.

    * Holy Cross is a scenic and challenging high mountain trail in central Colorado. It is an old mining trail that gold miners built and used until 1883 when the mines on Mt. Holy Cross played out. One of the more challenging 4x4 trails in Colorado, Holy Cross holds a rating of 8 to 9 on a 10-point difficulty scale.

    Each of the trails honored will be highlighted on BFGoodrich Tires’
    Nation of GO throughout the year. Nation of GO allows visitors to interact with members, as well as share their experiences on the trails by tracking drives and uploading photos and videos. Visit www.NationofGO.com/OutstandingTrails to view the 2010 Outstanding Trails trailheads.

    It is always great to see excellent trails get this kind of recognition.
    It is hard for BFG to make the selections.
    The list I submitted was full of great trails, and I know from talking to the guys that made the final selections, that it was a hard decision.

    Thanks to those that provided input to me to help build the list.
