- Some rivers are still high from recent flooding. Hazards to be prepared for include fast moving water, debris, eroded banks and downed trees. You can find some good river paddling and boating opportunities by keeping an eye on river levels and by contacting your local DNR office for more information. When you plan to be on the water, use caution and wear your life jacket. If you see logjams or flood damage at public water accesses, campsites or rest areas – please report conditions.

- Many trails and roads have temporary closures in effect due to wet conditions in state forests, parks, recreation areas and wildlife management areas.
- Road and trail users should pay particular attention to state forest closures. A closed forest means that all roads and trails are closed. Signs will be posted at entry points and parking lots. The closures include all unmarked roads and trails, unless specifically listed.
Temporary closures along trails
- Minnesota Valley State Trail is closed because of significant damage from summer flooding. Portions of the trail will be opened when they are safe to use and repairs are completed. We'll alert you of further details during the next few weeks. (Updated 7/25/14)
