Supported Project in P&TC’s 2018 Legislative Agenda
Extend the Harmony-Preston Valley State Trail to Niagara Cave and Iowa border.
2018 Identified Need
$1.5 million in General Bonding, plus $235,000 recommended by LCCMR
When complete, the Preston-Forestville State Trail will connect the existing Root River and Harmony-Preston State Trails to Forestville-Mystery Cave State Park. To date, one mile of trail and two bridges are built. The next phase of the project will complete 6 miles of trail, connecting Preston to Carimona, and includes 7 bridges as the trail follows the bank of the South Branch of the Root River and it’s narrow valley.
Grassroots initiative in partnership with Harmony Trails Commission and recommended by Legislative-Citizen Commission on Minnesota Resources (LCCMR) to be funded by the Environment & Natural Resources Trust Fund.
