A New Role: Advocate for
The Backcountry Trail Patrol
Association is a private, non-profit organization that provides
volunteer trail patrol and advocacy on the Chequamegon National
Forest In Wisconsin and the Marcell area of the Chippewa
National Forest in Minnesota.The patrol started as the Backcountry Trail Patrol Program
of the North-Central Mountain Bike Patrol (NCMBP) in 1999 to
promote and patrol trails on the Chippewa and Superior
National Forests in Minnesota. In 2003 when NCMBP became a
prorgam of MORC (Minnesota Off-Road Cyclists), the Backcountry
Patrol program became a separate, independent organization
concentrating on the Chippewa and Chequamegon National Forests.
We are active partners with the Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest and the CAMBA Trails which are our our primary
patrol venue, although we still occaisionally serve as casual volunteers on
the Chippewa National Forest, particularly the Trout
Lake and Suomi Hills Non-Motorized Management Areas south of
Marcell. We also patrol and
maintain the trails in Isanti
Parks, which we helped design and build.
In this era of
tightening budgets, the Backcountry Patrol helps the forest by
monitoring use, encouraging proper and safe recreational
activities, explaining forest management programs and
policies, and acting as a volunteer "face" of the Forest
Service to all trail users. We ask that all members commit to doing at least
12 hours of trail patrol on CAMBA 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:
Chequamegon Fat Tire Festival
Fat Bike Birkie
Other events we work are:
Lake Maria State Park (MN) Winter Family Fun Day
North End Ski Classic
Salsa Ride Camp
