      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

Very nice area to ride,a lot of trails.I ride mostly the single track stuff on dirtbike but the atv/ohm trails are nice too.Nothing too difficult that I've come across on those. You can drop in Akeley if you like,we use the trail head parking area north of the Stomping Grounds which is a good place to have lunch (great burgers ). Should be a good weekend if it doesn't rain,cool and few bugs to boot!

Dozer,

My husband is from Akeley, so we go up there a lot.

The Stompin Grounds is a good place to start (they do have good food). They have a HSOforum [Admin Note: Please read Forum Policy before posting again. Thank you] Click on Forests/Trails and there is a DNR link.

A good place to pick up a map of the Paul Bunyan State Forest is Bunyans Convenience store on the East side of Akeley on Hwy 34, before Hwy 64 goes North. They also do organized trail rides, but I'm not sure of the schedule.

If you have GPS, take it with you to draw your trail in case you get turned around up there.

Have fun - and please respect nature. We are visitors!!

We rode the area late last summer. We hit Round River Paul Bunyan State Forest, Forest Riders and others in the area. Plenty of official trails as well as unofficial trails in the area. I second the GPS idea, I am glad we had ours with last year. You can go to the DNR HSOforum and view trail maps and print the PDF's or when you have more time give them a call and request a book of all the maps for the trails in the entire state!! I believe they are FREE!!
