DNR reminds state forest visitors to check for road, trail closures

Due to recent heavy rains, and road and bridge construction, many roads and trails in Minnesota’s state forests are temporarily closed to vehicle use, according to the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR). These temporary travel restrictions will remain in effect until conditions improve.

“Closures can be unpredictable, and may vary in duration from one location to another, so it is important to always check with the DNR first,” said Mary Broten of the DNR Trails and Waterways Division.

Current information about temporary road and trail closures is available on the DNR’s Web site at www.mndnr.gov or at www.findthetrails.com. Click on “trail closures” and on “temporary state forest road closures” for a current listing of road and trail conditions all across Minnesota.
