A Hubbard County loop for the North Country National Scenic Trail is in the gestational stages thanks to an energetic bunch of volunteers.


The Waboose Lake loop could even open later this fall, if the workload continues at its current pace.

A group of Americorps volunteers, along with members of the Itasca Moraine Chapter of the North Country Trail, are hacking, pulling, hefting and hauling debris in the Paul Bunyan State Forest north of Nevis.
