Dayton: ‘State Water Trails’ Day Is Saturday

ST. PAUL, Minn. (WCCO) – Gov. Mark Dayton announced recently that “State Water Trails Day” is this coming Saturday. His goal is to raise awareness for paddling and boating opportunities throughout Minnesota.

Minnesota has the nation’s oldest and largest water trail system. It started in 1963 and is more than 20 years older than any other system in the U.S. Minnesota has 33 state water trails with more than 4,400 miles of recreational routes, managed by the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources.

Minnesotans are urged to get out and enjoy the state’s water trails this weekend, especially with warm and humid weather on the way.
