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 indivduals and businesses that support the Blue Hills Trail System year round.
Trail Conditions July 30th: most of the Eastside is drying out nicely; Westside is fairly dry. Some of the Eastside trails have been mowed (see below). Unmowed grasses range from 1 to 4 feet tall. Bugs aren't too bothersome right now.
Mowing Update: Eastside beginner's loop (1-22-23-1), hunter-walker loop (31-32-24-25), & adjacent trails (31-2A-2-2A-23A) were mowed in late July. Our mowing volunteers are working on more mowing on sunny days when they are available.
Snowfall: Wet snow showers April 29. Annual totals - click here.
