Many of Minnesota's forest roads and trails remain temporarily closed since they are not yet firm enough to support vehicle traffic.
The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources says it will lift road and trail closures as soon as possible, some of them as soon as next week. But trail users are asked to check before riding.
The state forests temporarily closed to vehicle traffic include Badoura, Big Fork, Blackduc , Bowstring, Chengwatana, Fond du Lac, Foot Hills, Golden Anniversary, Hill River, Huntersville, Land O'Lakes, Lyons, Nemadji, Paul Bunyan, Pine Island, Remer, Rum River, Smokey Bear, Smoky Hills, Snake River, St. Croix, Two Inlets, Waukenabo, Wealthwood, White Earth, and Whiteface River.
State forests with some, but not all, roads and trails closed as of Monday, March 29, include George Washington, Koochiching, Red Lake, Savanna, and Solana.
