The Transcaucasian Trail is supported primarily by individual donors who believe in our mission to improve access to the region’s diverse cultural and natural heritage, encourage its preservation, and benefit local communities and trail users through the development of sustainable tourism.
When you become an official member of the TCTA, you will be invited to participate in members-only events, mapping excursions, hikes, weekend trail workshops, and volunteering opportunities in the Caucasus and elsewhere.

How will my donation help the Transcaucasian Trail?

We work to ensure the conservation of the incredible cultural and natural landscapes of the region. And we foster understanding, dialogue, and leadership among the young people of the region as they volunteer with us to build the trail, working together, in these incredible mountains that they all share.
