Help plan Morning Star trails
   


In collaboration with local governments, recreationists and other interested parties, DNR is creating a trails plan that will guide development and management low-impact recreational opportunities and facilities in the Morning Star conservation area for the next 10 to 15 years.
 
DNR staff will evaluate existing trails with respect for traditional and cultural use, renovation, potential expansion, and desired hiking, backcountry camping and scenic vistas and viewpoints. Plan priorities will help identify future projects. The planning process will emphasize restoring environmentally sensitive areas and redeveloping existing popular trails.
