Welcome to the Colorado-Cherokee Trail Chapter website
The mission of the Colorado/Cherokee Trails Chapter of OCTA is to protect these Historic Emigrant Trails legacy by promoting research, education, preservation activities and public awareness of the trails, and to work with others to promote these causes. The Colorado-Cherokee Trail Chapter, not to be confused with the Cherokee Trail of Tears, works on marking and mapping the Colorado's network of trails and works with private landowners as well as government agencies, such as the Bureau of Land Management and the National Park Service, on preservation issues. It's a great way to get “on the ground” in OCTA because we sponsor trail outings our their area and have frequent meetings to discuss trail history and preservation.
Most of these events are open to members and non-members alike.
Membership in our chapter is voluntary, although in order to be a member of our local chapter you must be a member of national OCTA. Many members join the Colorado/Cherokee Trail Chapter to get the best available information about issues and projects in our area. We welcome members from all over. We publish own quarterly newsletter.
