Crow River Added to Water Trails 29 Aug 11

Minnesota has two new additions to its state water trail system, the South Fork of the Crow River and the Blue Earth River. Erik Wrede, Water Trials Coordinator for the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources, says this has been a big year for the state’s water trails. The DNR has revamped its river-level reporting system to make it easier for boaters, canoeists, and kayakers to check real-tim water levels on the state water trails. The DNR also has launched an online interactive map so boaters and paddlers can customize their own maps.
