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

Saturday morning, December 10, 2016:

Colder temps mean drier snow. We now have several inches of dry snow siting on top of partially frozen trails. Early season groomed skiing is available on a limited portion of trails (see grooming update tab).

 

REMEMBER, A GUN DEER HUNT IS IN EFFECT THROUGH SUNDAY, DECEMBER 11. WEAR BLAZE ORANGE IF VISITING THE TRAILS.

Grooming Update

Close to the warming house, a limited number of Eastside trails were packed (rolled) December 7-8-9. The result is a thin but skiable base. Click here for a map showing groomed trails. We'll groom more trails once the underlying trail surfaces are cold & frozen, and we receive more snow.

 

Click here for a map that shows where LOGGING occurred this summer/fall -- some of the involved trails will require a heavy snow cover before grooming can conceal ruts and ridges.
