The many miles of trails in our area bring hours of enjoyment to visitors and locals alike. What most people don’t think about while hiking on these trails is how they are kept in such great shape. Some trails or portions of trails are maintained by the USFS or MN DNR but many are maintained by volunteer groups.
There are many opportunities to help clear trails and you can usually find out more information by visiting the trail club’s websites, I’ve listed a few below. Coming soon is a trail clearing day for the Banadad Ski Trail on the Gunflint Trail and the USFS is looking for help with the Pow Wow Trail.

Banadad Trail Work Day and Annual Meeting/Pot Luck Dinner
Help Needed! The Banadad Trail Association invites you to help get the Banadad Ski Trail ready for winter. Tentative plans call for one crew of four or five people to clear a 300 foot reroute around a this beaver dam blocking the Tall Pines Trail.
