We give you advice and financial solutions as unique as you are to help you live the life you want.

Who is Trailhead?

We’re not the cookie-cutter, same-as-a-million-others place to bank. When you join Trailhead, you become part of a financial cooperative, where individuals come together to reach financial goals.

We have earned our members’ trust by providing stellar service since 1935 through a comprehensive suite of financial products, tools, and advice. Unlike a bank, as a credit union, we return profits to our customers (who we call members) through better rates and lower fees.
