GRAND MARAIS, Minn. (AP) -- The U.S. Forest Service and the Boy Scouts are teaming up to build new trails and improve existing trails in the Superior National Forest in northeastern Minnesota.
The Scout's honor society, the Order of the Arrow, will bring around 200 Scouts and adult leaders from Minnesota, Wisconsin, Iowa and the Dakotas to Grand Marais this week.
Eight separate crews will construct new mountain biking trails at Pincushion Mountain near Grand Marais and the Sugarbush Trail system near Tofte, and improve sections of the Superior Hiking Trail. The event runs Tuesday through Saturday.
The Superior Hiking Trail Association, Superior Cycling Association, Conservation Corps of Minnesota and Iowa, and International Mountain Biking Association are providing additional support and coordination.
