Welcome to the Beartooth Recreational Trails Association


The Beartooth Recreational Trails Association (BRTA) was organized in 2002 to:

1) continue operations of the Red Lodge Nordic Center (RLNC);

2) promote non-motorized trails in Red Lodge and along the Beartooth Front.

We work  with the Forest Service, the City of Red Lodge, Carbon County, private land owners and other organizations to create and maintain trails. We have attracted many supporters and are an official 501(c)3 non-profit.  We rely on your donations, and they are tax deductible.

Attend one of our FUNdraising events and support BRTA to keep Nordic skiing, snowshoeing, hiking,  biking, and horseback riding priorities in our community!

Check out our EVENTS page to see what we have scheduled and what related organizations are doing.

New Film Screens at the Roman Theater

“On the Shoulders of Giants” celebrates private land conservation in Montana

Thursday, September 21, 2017
6:00 - 7:30 p.m.

The community is invited to a free film event celebrating the legacy of private land conservation across Montana. On The Shoulders of Giants was produced by Bozeman filmmaker and photographer Eric Ian to mark the 40th anniversary of the first conservation easement secured in Montana. This screening is sponsored by The Montana Land Reliance, Beartooth Recreational Trails Association, and Beartooth Front Community Forum.

The film does far more than mark an anniversary. It includes interviews with many of the pioneers of private land conservation in Montana such as Hank Goetz, Land Lindbergh, Rock Ringling, and Dave Carr. The exquisite cinematography gives viewers a breathtaking overview of conservation projects around the state – from the Blackfoot Valley to the grasslands of eastern Montana. It celebrates the partnerships that, together, have conserved 2.4 million acres of private land in the state.

The film will be accompanied by remarks from representatives of The Montana Land Reliance, Beartooth Recreational Trails Association, and the Beartooth Front Community Forum.
