State Forest classification and trail route designation

In 2012, the DNR began reviewing all state forest trail systems to identify measures to improve trail sustainability and enhance user experiences for both motorized and non-motorized uses.

 

In 2008, the DNR completed a forest-by-forest review of Minnesota State Forests to determine their appropriate classification with regard to Off-Highway Vehicle (OHV) use. Road and trail access was also evaluated for a variety of both motorized and non-motorized recreational activities. The results of this process are summarized below.
