McLEOD, CARVER, AND HENNEPIN COUNTIES, MN – The horse trail along the Luce Line State Trail, from Vicksburg Lane in Plymouth to the City of Winsted, will be closed from Saturday, March 7 to about May 15. The closure is intended to prevent damage to the tread way from wet conditions and frost coming out of the ground, according to a release from the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR).
Signs will be posted on the horse trail notifying users of the trail closure. DNR conservation officers and local law enforcement officials will monitor compliance
The main tread way will remain open for permitted uses. Horseback riding is not permitted on the main tread way at any time.
Those who choose the Luce Line Trail to walk their dogs are reminded that dogs must be leashed and dog waste should be picked up. Trail rules say that dogs must be on a leash that is 6 feet or shorter.
Questions regarding the horse trail closure or any other trail-related issues can be directed to Rachel Henzen, DNR area parks and trails supervisor, at 651-259-5875.
