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.

Now we can store our snowmobiles under cover, safe and well protected. Let the snow fly! ... See MoreSee Less
