State Forest roads, trails now open

The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR) has opened many -- but not all -- of the roads and trails temporarily closed to highway licensed vehicles, commercial vehicles, and off-highway vehicles (OHV) used in Minnesota state forests this spring.

State forest roads and trails closure status reports are listed on the DNR Web site which is updated by 2 p.m. every Thursday.

The DNR has posted signs announcing closures at state forest entry points and parking lots. Updates on the status of specific state forest roads and trails are also available from the DNR Information Center, 651-296-6157 or toll-free at 888-MINNDNR (646 6367), between 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. weekdays.
