Minnesota DNR seeking feedback on new cross-state, four-wheel trail

Posted: Updated:

A new cross-state, four-wheel trail is in the works, and the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources is looking for your feedback.

It's called the Border-to-Border Touring Route, and it would connect the eastern and western borders of Minnesota by running through much of the Northland. 

The end product will be a signed, mapped route for highway-licensed, four-wheel drive vehicles, following routes that are already open for driving. 

Wednesday's meeting will be held at the Mountain Iron Community Center from 6-8 p.m.
