"2012 was an amazing year on the North Country Trail," by Regional Trail Coordinator Matt Davis' standards.

The North Country National Scenic Trail was extended 21 miles in Becker County, including 14.5 miles in the Tamarac National Wildlife Refuge.


"We've been planning this trail for 20 years," said Kelly Blackledge, Visitors Services Manager with U.S. Fish and Wildlife. "Now that it's done and walkable, it's really a treasure."
