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 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.  Your donations are tax deductible.

The RLNC continues to grow with new skiers and new trails. We are  involved with Rocky Fork Trails (the Red Lodge city trail system), and the Beartooth Ranger District.   Support BRTA and keep Nordic skiing, hiking, snowshoeing, biking, and horseback riding priorities in our community!
