On Trail Training was founded by Matt Balazs, who has over two decades of experience as a professional off-road guide and instructor in the Colorado High Country. Matt recognized a need for qualified driving and recovery instruction and that is how On Trail Training was born. Located in the front range of Colorado, On Trail Training offers classes for anyone with an interest in traveling off road in a full-size vehicle. Specializing in teaching Clubs, Industrial, Emergency Services, Individuals, and Nonprofit organizations we can custom design a course for your specific needs.
