photograph of a Forest

Minnesota's state forests contain more than 2,000 miles of forest roads and thousands of logging trails that provide access for wildlife observation, hunting, or simply enjoyment of the forests' beauty. Check temporary state forest road closures for up-to-date information about state forest roads.
Know the rules before you head out on the road and trails out into the state forests.

Trail users are legally responsible for obeying the rules and regulations provided in Minnesota Rules, part 6100.3000 through 6100.4300.
