CHISHOLM — Construction continues on a 10.1 mile All Terrain Vehicle (ATV) trail between just north of Chisholm to Connors Road and Highway 5, between Chisholm and the Side Lake area.
Northern Traxx ATV Club Secretary Larry Folstad stated in press release Monday that the trail is on schedule to be completed for an early summer 2012 opening.
In the meantime, the club is asking for the public’s cooperation by staying off the trail.
“Many property owners have granted the ATV club permission to cross their property, and we ask that everyone respect those property owners by not trespassing or try using the trail until its officially open to the public,” stated Folstad.
The Northern Traxx dedicated six to eight years to planning and obtaining permits for the trail. After being given the go-ahead, construction on the trail began last month.
Funding for the trail involves a $88,000 grant from the Minnesota Trails Assistance Program and a matching grant from the Federal Recreational Trail Grant Program.
