Spring 2017 Trail Clearing Schedule

Check back soon for trips going out in this spring and summer.

About Mechanized Trips

Trips depart from the Twin Cities the evening of the listed start date and return the evening of the listed end date. Sign up and pay for mechanized trips at the BRT Meetup Group website.

About Wilderness Trips

The wilderness sections of the Border Route Trail run above and along several border lakes and provide spectacular overlooks to those lakes. Trail clearing consists of removing brush and downed trees and in the wilderness is done with hand tools: crosscut saws, loppers, and scythes. Most trips travel up after work on Thursday and return on Sunday. Please note that the Memorial weekend trip leaves on Friday night and returns on Monday. All paddling equipment and tools will be provided. Once registrations start coming in, a trip organizing email will be sent out to set up carpooling arrangements, a food plan, a suggested personal gear list along with more information about the trip.
