The NCTA Wisconsin Roving Trail Crew, “the Rovers,” is a group of volunteers from a variety of NCTA Chapters. In 2024, the group will be spending the majority (if not all) of the 2024 season opening the Foster Falls / Potato River corridor (8+ miles), building trail tread, constructing bridges throughout, and possibly building some stone stairs as well. Swimming in the falls (both Foster and/or Wren) as water temperatures allow will be a highlight. This work area falls within the NCTA Heritage Chapter area.

Join us this May to continue opening the trail corridor and roughing in trail at Foster Falls / Quiet Pines Camp near Gurney. There will be no structure construction while we wait for spring thaw to finish and drier conditions.

If you have never been on one of the Rovers’ workweeks, it is the NCTA’s flagship volunteer crew program and has built most of the new NCNST and trail structures in Wisconsin over the last couple of decades. Here is how it works: The crew gathers on Monday afternoon to set up camp and enjoy dinner together. Volunteers work on the project from Tuesday through Friday morning. Camp is broken down on Friday and volunteers depart for home. The crew camps together and all meals are provided at no charge.
Volunteers can join the crew for a day, a couple of days, the whole week, or the whole season. Overnight camp spots do fill quickly, but there are ample opportunities to join the crew for the day. If interested, email Brad at
