Public Input Needed for Recreational Trails

The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources will hold a public input meeting about the future of motorized and nonmotorized trails in Huntersville and Lyons state forests and other state forest lands in Wadena County.

The meeting will be 6 to 8 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 25, at Menahga Public School, 216 Aspen Ave. SE, Menahga.

Potential changes to trails within the planning area include adding new trails, connecting trails to facilities and amenities, and rerouting or closing unsustainable trails. 

Comments received at the meeting will be used to develop a draft recommendation that will be submitted to the DNR commissioner for approval. Changes to forest trail designations must be made by commissioner’s orders. 

Written comments may be submitted by fax to 651-297-1157, by email to or by mail to Joe Unger, Parks and Trails Division, Minnesota DNR, 500 Lafayette Road, St. Paul, MN  55155-4039. The DNR will accept written comments through Wednesday, Nov. 8
