Blue Hills Trail

The Blue Hills Trail was established in 1987 by a group of local x-country skiers.  The organization reincorporated as the Blue Hills Trail Association (BHTA) in the fall of 2006 to reflect the increasingly regional nature of the operation and to facilitate the attainment of 501c3 status.


The group remains dependent on annual membership dues, donations, and the cooperation of the Rusk County Forestry Department for its continued existence.  New members, suggestions and financial support are all greatly appreciated.  Thanks to all the individuals and businesses that support the Blue Hills Trail System year round.






Trail Conditions

Wednesday, June 29, 2016:

With recent rainy weather, you'll find the driest trails are those on the Westside and the trails closest to the warming house on the Eastside. Grasses are as short as ankle high but as tall as chest high. Bug activity is quite mild (small numbers of mosquitoes, horseflies and ticks).


Be sure to look at the "Mowing Update" tab to find the mowed trails.

Grooming Update

Summer mowing of the Eastside began June 22nd.

Westside mowing usually occurs in late July.
