The Department of Natural Resources has compiled a plan to designate certain roads in the Minnessippi Headwaters State Forest for all terrain vehicle use and place other roads off-limits. TRails and Waterways Manager Bill Johnson said the forest is currently controlled by three counties and the DNR and each governmental entity has its own specific rules. Johnson said which of the 130 miles in the forest can be used for motor vehicle travel and use will depend upon who owns the land. Johnson said the biggest change will occur on Hubbard County and DNR lands where the rules will change from open unless posted closed to closed unless posted open and reducing the amount of roads that can be used. You can take a look at the plan on the DNR web site at Public comments are being taken on the plan until January 22nd. A public hearing will be held on Wednesday night, January 16th at the Bemidji State University Student Union from 6-8:30pm.
