Welcome to the Beartooth Recreational Trails Association
The Beartooth Recreational Trails Association (BRTA) was organized in 2002 for two primary purposes:
1) to continue the winter operations of the Red Lodge Nordic Center (RLNC).
2) to promote year round non-motorized trail systems 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 expand future trails. We have attracted many supporters and are an official 501(c)3 non-profit. Your donations are tax deductible.
The RLNC continues to grow with new skiers and new trails. We are involved with Rocky Fork Trails and the Red Lodge city trail system. Support BRTA and keep Nordic skiing, hiking, snowshoeing, biking, and horseback riding priorities in our community!
