The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Rydell National Wildlife Refuge’s trails have been reopened to the public. The trails were closed during most of July and into August due to a trail improvement project. Please be cautioned that portions of the trails are currently graveled. These portions are sporadic and range in length. The refuge is currently working to complete the trail improvement with asphalt overlay within the upcoming months. While we go through this lengthy process, the trails are being reopened to the public. Prior to the asphalt being laid, the trails will be closed for a short period of time to allow this process to be completed. Thank you for your patience as we continue to improve our trails for your enjoyment. For any questions or concerns, please contact the Refuge Headquarters at (218)687-2229 ext. 16.
