DNR seeks input on Smoky Hills ATV Trail proposal

The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources invites public review and written comments on a proposal by the city of Wolf Lake to obtain grant-in-aid funding for the Smoky Hills ATV Trail in Becker County.  

About 18 miles of the trail are currently designated for ATV use. New trail segments would connect existing trails and add approximately 2 miles of new riding opportunities in Carsonville, Green Valley and Wolf Lake townships. The new trail would be maintained by the city of Wolf Lake and the Woods and Wheels ATV Club.

The DNR will accept written comments until 4:30 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 2. Comments may be submitted:

  • Via email to david.schotzko@state.mn.us.
  • Via mail to Dave Schotzko, area supervisor, Parks and Trails Division, Minnesota DNR, 3296 State Park Road NE, Bemidji, MN 56601.

A map of the proposed trail segments can be found at www.mndnr.gov. For more information, call Dave Schotzko, 218-308-2367.
