Crow Wing County updates signage, maps on recreation trails, forest entrances
The Crow Wing County Land Services Department updated signage and maps on recreation trails and forest entrances on county-administered public forestland.
The updates include new maps for 23 trails totaling 232 miles, new kiosks at the trailheads of 11 "high-use" trails and 32 new green county-branded signs at the entrances to various county land access points and trailheads.
The new kiosks are a three-panel design that includes a map showing all of the county-administered trails for all uses, as well as other regionally significant and state trail systems managed by other agencies and organizations in the area.
The kiosks also include important information about recreation safety and other regulations. In addition to the updated maps, the county plans to have foldout brochures for the overall trails map and all individual trails it administers available for use by the public and its agency partners.
"We think these enhancements to our recreation trails marketing achieves the county's vision of being 'Minnesota's Favorite Place,'" Chris Pence of land services said in a news release.
"We are proud to showcase Crow Wing County's diverse recreation opportunities available to people of all ages and abilities."
