These are the locations of the trails in the BWCAW that the Kekekabic Trail Club supports with trail work. The trails are located in the Boundary Waters Canoe area, an area known the world over for its many lakes and great canoeing. It is less known for its hiking, snowshoeing, and skiing trails.
In the late 70's and early 80's the trails were abandoned by the USFS because of budget cutbacks. The trails almost receeded back into the boreal forest. In 1989 the Kekekabic Trail Club was formed to reclaim some of these historic trails. In 1992 The Kekekabic Trail Club together with the Minnesota Rovers, the Minnesota Parks and Trails Council and the 3M Kekekabic Outdoor Club formed the MWTA. The Minnesota Wilderness Trail Alliance was formed to restore and maintain hiking trails in the Superior National Forest, with priority given to several threatened wilderness trails in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness (BWCAW).
The following maps were taken from the club's newsletter, The Hungry Beaver, in May, June, July of 1996.
