Our Department of Natural Resources (DNR) field contacts continue to work with us and check our trails. Our grant sponsors continue to maintain a close relationship with those field contacts. They work hard to ensure that everything runs smoothly.

The chart included here shows you where your trail permit dollars went last season.
