Otter Tail/Becker county line southwest of Frazee to Itasca State Park
The Laurentian Lakes Chapter formed in 2006 and has over 80 members, mostly from the Ponsford, Detroit Lakes, Moorhead and Frazee areas of Minnesota, and Fargo, North Dakota. The Chapter is responsible for 72 miles of the NCT. To date, it has built over 47 miles and maintains 62 miles of trail from Itasca State Park to the Becker/Otter Tail County border near Frazee. Guided hikes are generally held monthly with anchor events in January (Winter Trails Day), June (National Trails Day), August (Hiking Fest) and September (National Scenic Trails Day). Each hike is advertised in area newspapers and Chamber of Commerce newsletters. Meetup membership meetings are held quarterly to include a January dinner meeting/silent auction, and a joint meeting with the Itasca Moraine Chapter in October with a dinner and featured speaker. The Chapter board meets several times a year to discuss Chapter activities such as planning, building and maintaining trails, hiking events, training volunteers, marketing and membership. The Chapter welcomes new members and deeply appreciates the work of current members and non-member volunteers who contribute over 2,000 hours to the Chapter per year. Please connect with us. We would love to have you join us!
