(e) Swedish Immigrant Regional Trail Segment within Interstate State Park
$2,254,000 the second year is from the trust fund to the commissioner of natural resources for an agreement with Chisago County Environmental Services to construct an approximate one-half-mile regional county trail segment within Interstate State Park from the end point of the existing trail at the park boundary to city hall including a trail bridge over the ravine and parking and trailhead improvements and to conduct a natural and cultural review to determine the feasibility and route of a future section of the trail through the park. This appropriation is available until June 30, 2021, by which time the project must be completed and final products delivered.
Connect trail to Interstate State Park by extending it with a 0.5-mile segment that includes a 180-foot bridge and trailhead
This project, lead by Chisago County, would offer an exceptional trail experience to an area that already serves 500,000 visitors every year, showcasing unique hardwood forests and connecting to existing regional trails. The trail would run through a forested area of Interstate State Park and into downtown Taylors Falls.
Legislative-Citizen Commission on Minnesota Resources (LCCMR) has recommended this project to be funded by the Environment & Natural Resources Trust Fund.
