The OTTA is focused on preserving and creating backcountry singletrack trail experiences along the OTT corridor. The backcountry cyclist is not only looking for a well-designed and well-maintained trail, but an un-molested landscape to travel through while experiencing diverse ecosystems and rich cultural history. Access, trail connectivity, conservation, and public land preservation are paramount to the sought experience of the OTT rider.
