The Yamaha Outdoor Access Initiative congratulates the Cuyuna Iron Range Riders on their local news coverage for their work on the 4,000-acre Miller Black Bear Trails located in the Crosby area of Crow Wing County, Minn.
The Cuyuna Iron Range Riders have been improving, maintaining, and patrolling the trails since the site was approved by the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources in April. The club’s work includes building an 8-foot wide 12-foot long bridge over a waterway, setting up informational kiosks for two trailheads, posting signage along the trails, and grading trails with gravel. The club plans on expanding the currently existing 19 miles of trail by an additional .75-mile. The club also intends to add picnic tables and grills to the site in the near future.
In an effort to maintain and protect the trails, the Cuyuna Iron Range Riders will continue to patrol the area to discourage people from harmful or dangerous activities. The club hopes that increased supervision of the trails will help prevent littering and other disrespectful behavior, creating a safer, more enjoyable experience for users of the trials. The Cuyuna Iron Range Riders are dedicated to maintaining the safe and responsible use of the Miller Black Bear Trails and the Yamaha Outdoor Access Initiative is proud to support their efforts.
