Summer Trails

BRTA creates, maintains and promotes trails in Red Lodge and along the Beartooth Front. We have worked with the US Forest Service to promote non-motorized trails in the Custer National Forest, and with the City, County, and private landowners to develop the Rocky Fork trail system.

Useful websites for regional trails information: hikewildmontana.org and trailforks.com

We are represented on the new (2016) Red Lodge Active Transportation Plan, a proposed plan for the city of Red Lodge to promote healthy lifestyle, alternative transportation, safe routes to schools, walkability and bicycle accommodation. This is an exciting endeavor by multiple organizations and agencies, including Chamber of Commerce, BRTA, Red Lodge Public Schools, City Parks, Trees and Open Space committee, City Council and City Planning Dept.

BRTA has a Memorandum Of Understanding (MOU) with the city of Red Lodge to maintain the city’s Rocky Fork Trail system in town. To do the basic, light work of maintaining these trails, we have created an ADOPT-A-TRAIL program. Thanks to these volunteers for making this work:

Bill Zander, Liz Frazer, Ray Masters, Tricia Decker, Grant & Laurie Barnard,  Red Lodge High School Student Council with teacher Kate Belinda, Back Alley Metals, Mike Szczutkowski, Marlene Tetrault, Bill Foisy, Rotary International, Lynn & Sue Glock, Jane Ferguson Wilderness Adventures and Andy Baranovic!

In 2016 we supported the City of Red Lodge in passing an Active Transportation Plan to promote healthy lifestyle, alternative transportation, safe routes to schools, walkability and bicycle accommodation. This exciting endeavor was supported by multiple organizations and agencies, including the Chamber of Commerce, Beartooth Billings Clinic, Red Lodge Public Schools, City Parks, Trees and Open Space committee, City Council and City Planning Dept.

The Plan highlighted the need to construct and maintain trails in the city of Red Lodge and its surroundings—not only in the National Forest. Thus we now advocate for trails within the city (such as the forthcoming multi-use trail along US 212 to the hospital) and work with private landowners to build or upgrade publicly accessible trails on their property.

Some of our proposed and dreamed-of trails include:
