Trail Patrol Activity Schedule
The Backcountry Trail Patrol
Association is a private, non-profit organization that provides
volunteer trail patrol and medical support at special events as
part of the National Mountain Bike Patrol. We are the third
oldest active patrol in NMBP, and were the sixth patrol to join
back when NMBP was part of NORBA. Because of the interests and
abilities of some of our members, we also do some patrol on
cross-country skis and snowshoes. Our primary patrol venue is
the CAMBA Trails and the Chequamegon National Forest in
Wisconsin, and, and secondarily, the trails in Isanti County
Parks and the Chippewa National Forest in Minnesota.
We ask that all members commit to doing at least
12 hours of trail patrol on CAMBA and/or MORC trails per season,
and work at least three events over the course of a year. You
can see by the list below there are
plenty of opportunities to work events.
Our major events are:
City of Lakes Loppet Urban Ski Festival
CAMBA/Mt. Borah Epic
Team Ortho Minneapolis Marathon
Chequamegon Fat Tire Festival
Medtronic Twin Cities Marathon
Other events we work are:
Cuyuna Lakes Whiteout Fat Bike Race
Team Ortho Minneapolis Duathlon
Patroller coordinated events include:
Lake Maria State Park Winter Family Fun Day
Lake Maria SP Candlelight Snowshoe Hike
