CENTERVILLE, UT. (September 17, 2020)— Tread Lightly!, a U.S.-based nonprofit dedicated to promoting responsible outdoor recreation through education and stewardship programs today announced onX Offroad as its newest Official Partner providing GPS services.
As an Official Partner of Tread Lightly!, onX Offroad’s efforts and donation will help to ensure millions of outdoor enthusiasts are reached through education campaigns, trail stewardship projects, and responsible recreation training.
The onX Offroad App offers almost a billion acres of public land for you to explore, as well as 410,000+ miles of off-road specific trails and roads, from dunes to peaks and everything in between, in all fifty states.
“onX Offroad helps enthusiasts navigate, on two wheels or four, to open trails and tracks, across the continent,” said Rory Edwards onX Offroad General Manager. “We believe the power is in the palm of your hand to responsibly plan, navigate, and access public land. Our partnership with Tread Lightly! helps further our team’s mission to keep trails and lands open and accessible for generations to come.”
