The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR) urges off-highway vehicle (OHV) riders to use caution when out in state forests to avoid damage to forest access trails and roads. Riders also should watch for closures of trails and roads because of wet conditions.
As the snow melts, current forest road and trail conditions are becoming wet throughout much of northern Minnesota
“We are asking OHV riders to use good judgment when they are out in the forest,” said Bob Moore, DNR parks and trails supervisor, Grand Rapids.
Closures vary from south to north as spring thaws occur. Closed areas will be opened as soon as conditions allow.
