Work Begins on FLATS

After years of planning and fundraising, construction officially began on the Forest Lake Area Trail System (FLATS) with a groundbreaking celebration Oct. 3 by the petroglyph site in Thousand Hills State Park.

Phase one of the trail is an eight-foot-wide ADA-accessible concrete path between the petroglyph site and the marina at Thousand Hills State Park. Phase two will connect the two campgrounds and phase three will connect Kirksville and Thousand Hills State Park.
