Some 200 yards of rock and gravel fill material restored access to the Bernard's Orchard Trail in a boggy area of Beltrami Island State Forest. Flooding had made the 2-mile trail basically impassable before repair work was done through a partnership between the Northstar Trail Alliance and the Minnesota DNR. The trail provides connectivity that is crucial to ATV systems. Brad Dokken / Forum News Serviceplay button
