The Blue Hills Trail Association (formerly Rusk Country Trail Association or RCTA) was established by a group of local x-country skiers in 1987 and was incorporated during the fall of that year. It remains an organization that is dependent on annual membership dues, donations, and the cooperation of the Rusk County Forestry Department for its continued existence.
