Belknap Range Trail Tenders

Welcome to BRATTS!


We are a group of volunteers of all ages, backgrounds and skills whose goal is the maintenance of hiking trails in the Belknap Range of New Hampshire.

BRATTS maintains hiking trails throughout the Range by employing Best Management Practices promoted by the State. These Best Management Practices are intended as guidelines for erosion control and wetlands impact minimization/avoidance during trail construction and maintenance activities. The practices were developed to help protect our state’s natural resources.

To be an independent hiking trail maintenance organization: aspects to include the continuation of trail crews and an adopt-a-trail program utilizing Best Management Practices for protection of the environment. To foster and develop relations with organizations, and landowners– private and public– that include trails on their lands in The Belknap Range.
