Minnesota State Forest
Trail and Management Revisions
The DNR is considering a number of measures to improve trail sustainability and enhance user experiences for both motorized and non-motorized uses including:
- Adding new trails
- Adding trail connection
- Changing allowable trail uses
- Designating areas where motor vehicle use is restricted during trapping and hunting seasons
- Closing unsustainable trails
The trail system changes will not include changing forest-wide limited, managed, or closed motorized classifications.
The DNR held an open house May 22, 2013 in Askov to present information and receive public comments on proposed changes to trail systems in the Pine County state forests.
Written comments on the proposals may be submitted until 4:30 pm on June 24, 2013.
