Identifying NCT Route in Minnesota’s “Big Gap Area”

Categories: Minnesota, Trail Maintenance


The NCTA has partnered with the Arrowhead Regional Development Commission (ARDC) planning organization to help identify NCT route possibilities in two parts of the Arrowhead reroute’s “Big Gap Area.”

One of the areas the NCTA Arrowhead Chapter will start with is located north of the existing NCT by CR-61. It contains many iron mining properties that require special attention in routing the NCT.

We are currently asking land managers and the public to provide input into those identified route possibilities before our volunteers go out to start scouting. Learn more here.
