Trail Access Pass

Every purchase of a pass helps keep our conservation areas open for the benefit of all. Many people believe conservation areas are paid for by their tax dollars, but that is not the case. Membership fees pay for trail construction and maintenance, emergency services, property taxes, insurance and all those little things we need to keep our conservation areas open.
Just as important, purchasing your membership contribute directly to important conservation work throughout our watershed. Membership dollars help protect, preserve and restore ecosystems, and heritage sites on HCA lands. They also assist with education programs.
Buy and HCA pass, and you’ll not only get a great deal on the Great Outdoors, but you’ll be protecting it for generations to come.
