Ed Solstad: Volunteer Spotlight
Ed and many of the other volunteers who work on the Border Route Trail live in the Twin Cities, a mere 250-mile one-way trip to their Trail.
Also, some portions of the Trail can be reached only by means of canoe trips, so the several disasters that continually visit the area force too few people to clean up after windstorms and fires, to keep clear a trail that is constantly bursting with new regrowth yet doesn’t get enough hiking to keep a path visible. Ed has been actively working on this challenging trail since 1971!
He also promotes the Trail by hosting displays at several outdoor programs annually, and was active for years promoting the Arrowhead Reroute legislation which enables the Border Route to become official NCNST. He is also active working with the land managers of the Superior National Forest. Please join us in celebrating and thanking him!
