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

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.

    • Good question, why didn't they find any more?  Did those two infected deer parachute in?  Were they dropped by a helicopter?  I find it fascinating they could get as far as Lanesboro and they only find two out of thousands.  Like I said, they're bad at conspiracy.    Policing the borders?  How about a billboard, a radio ad, or a twitter campaign?  How about having the highway patrol pull over anyone with hooves or antlers sticking outta their truck box or laying on a flatbed coming across the border on the interstate?    My wealth and land ownership shouldn't disqualify me from questioning the DNR.  It used to be a staple of a free country to question your government.  Somehow now it's more important to kneel before the all knowing DNR and take whatever they want to shove in our mouths?  If this is real science and a real mitigation effort, let's have a discussion about it.  If the DNR wants to stop this spread, why are they not welcoming with open arms feedback like mine when it comes to import enforcement, and an effective PR campaign?  Cause guess what fella, lots of deer got hauled home from all kinds of places infected with CWD by uninformed folks that are going to cut up those critters and throw the brains and spinal cords out in the woods at home.    So yeah, this is either a giant hoax, or the DNR has no idea what the hell they're doing. 
    • I just checked on the fans that I bought, there 4.7 inchs sq and 1.25 thick. I thought they were 5 inch thick but I was wrong. They are 110v and I think I will put one inside on the bottom plate and see how it works. And I like where you have your fishingstar.
    • Slowly getting the outside buttoned up 
    • Yea I had that idea too 
    • I saw three or four huts in the little wet area in the lake vadnais area just off country road F.   But they would probably get upset if you set traps there...    right next to the new path that goes south along the east side of the lake. 
    • In the olden days, pigs were fed garbage.  Trichinosis was a problem.  Then laws were passed so any garbage fed to pigs had to be cooked first.  Problem went away.   According to CDC there hasn't been a case of trichinosis except from eating wild game like bear meat for many years.  
    • From a quick google search it looks like waveinn.com or the bay of e might be your best bets, if you don't want to buy from shimano.
    • Does anyone know of a place you can get spare Shimano Sedona spools?? I run braid in the summer and don't want to run it on the ice.
