The formation of BCH took place in Montana’s Flathead Valley in January of 1973. Since then, we’ve grown to over 200 chapters throughout 31 states. Our progress is a matter of record, a record of which we are very proud. We have used our specialized knowledge of stock, the backcountry and wilderness to support management and the public’s enjoyment of several national scenic and historic trails, including the Appalachian (Great Smoky Mnts), Continental Divide, Pacific Crest, and Pacific Northwest national scenic trails and the Pony Express and Old Spanish national historic trails. Our volunteers work to keep trails open for all.
