Area forest input wanted by DNR
March 5, 2021
The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources will host a virtual public input meeting from 6-7:30 p.m. on March 11 about potential trail modifications within the Fond du Lac State Forest in Carlton County.
Fond du Lac State Forest recreational trails are popular among off-highway vehicle users, hunters and cross-country skiers. Current trail opportunities include approximately 37 miles of OHV trails, 18 miles of cross-country ski trails and 11 miles of hunter walking trails.
Potential trail modifications will be considered for both motorized and non-motorized trails. Participants who attend the virtual meeting are encouraged to submit their ideas for these trails. DNR is seeking comments on the allowed uses (i.e., designations) of these trails, as well as desired connections to facilities and amenities, new trails, and rerouting or closure of unsustainable trails.
People may attend the virtual meeting via computer, smartphone, or telephone. Meeting instructions can be found at the DNR website online on the Fond du Lac State Forest tab.
