it doesn't look like the map on the DNR site has been updated to show that it is.

Try calling the Moose Lake DNR office to see if they have any updates. That would be your best source of info.

Ah---the Solana loop, spent many hours on the ground GPS'ing the route last fall and this spring. The EAW is being completed and should be out for public comment soon. Would be nice to have constuction started this fall but time will tell. The Solana forest is in the Grand Rapids DNR Trails and Waterways area.

the one i was looking at is by moose lake actually in pine

county. the dnr says the 13 mile loop will be done in 2008.

this is to connect to the trails already in the forest.

will have to keep checking the DNR site.

thanks

bbqhead--we are talking about the same loop, it is NE of McGrath and just E of the Soo Line.

ok, i am in denham right on the soo line. was hoping we could

take the soo line down and get into the forest and check out

some new bow hunting areas.we used to hunt mcandrews, but they

logged out all the good hunting areas.

thanks

I'm surprised this trail is in the Grand Rapids Trails and Waterways Div. It's a lot closer to Moose Lake.

Either way, the contact info on the DNR site is for GR:

MN DNR T & W

Grand Rapids Area Office

(218) 999-7920

with the solana trail system. kinda between denham and

the red top. i suppose they changed that too... i will

bbqhead---if you call the Dnr at 218-999-7920, Connie will likely direct your call to Rick at 999-7926 for any info on the solana area trails.
