Kekekabic Trail Chapter

About the Chapter:

The Kekekabic Trail Chapter is dedicated to preserving and maintaining backpacking trails of the Superior National Forest and Boundary Waters Canoe Area.

Because of its remote nature and frequent natural disturbances, the Kek needs a lot of annual maintenance and spring trail clearing trips are the normal vehicle for making that happen. Fortunately, it’s not hard to recruit volunteers to participate in these trips as people love visiting the BWCAW and helping out when someone else organizes the logistics.
