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

Tuesday, May 19:

Grasses are short, hiking is good, trails are soft and damp after the past couple rainy weeks. Biking conditions are OK on the Westside where the trails are drier. Spring wildflowers are still showing off, ticks are on the move, mosquitoes are present in surprisingly small numbers.

Mowing Update

We'll post updates this summer as grasses grow and trail mowing is underway.

Big warm-up began March 7, last grooming of the ski trails was March 11.


April 21: blustery day, frequent snow showers, no accumulation
