DNR invites public comment on trail management plans for Foot Hills State Forest

The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources encourages people to learn about and comment on potential trail revisions within the Foot Hills State Forest in Cass County during an online public meeting from 6-7:30 p.m. on Monday, April 26. Comments and ideas may also be submitted by 4:30 p.m. on Friday, May 14.

As part of its Minnesota State Forest Trail Revision project, the DNR is considering a number of measures to improve trail sustainability and enhance user experience for both motorized and non-motorized uses within the Foot Hills State Forest. Potential measures include adding connections to facilities and amenities, adding new trails, and rerouting or closing unsustainable trails. 

Visit the Minnesota State Forest Trail Revision Project webpage  for links to information on the project and meeting details.

Meeting attendees are encouraged to submit questions in advance by emailing foresttrailplanning.dnr@state.mn.us.
