DNR seeks input on David Dill-Arrowhead State Trail master plan review

The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources invites the public to an open house to learn about updating the master plan for the David Dill-Arrowhead State Trail in St. Louis and Koochiching counties. 

The open house will be from 6-8 p.m. on Sept. 4 at the Cook Community Center, 699 3rd Ave. S.E., Cook. The main parking lot and building entrance are along Gopher Avenue. Visitors to the open house can review information, ask questions and submit comments.

The David Dill-Arrowhead State Trail is about 125 miles long, stretching from an intersection with the David Dill-Taconite State Trail, just east of Tower, northwest to an intersection with the Blue Ox Trail, just south of International Falls. The current master plan was written in 1980 and revised in 1983. The trail is primarily managed for snowmobile use, but other uses such as hiking, biking, horseback riding and skiing are permitted in certain areas.

Written comments may also be submitted by emailing joe.unger@state.mn.us, using the online comment form or sending via US mail to Joe Unger, DNR Parks and Trails, 500 Lafayette Road, St. Paul, MN, 55155. The DNR will accept written comments through Sept. 18.
