The Two Harbors Trails Plan was published in 2005 and has proved an effective document guiding trail development in the City for the last decade. Changes in the community, and in funding opportunities, call for the document to be updated in a comprehensive “Master Plan” format. This Master Plan will use input from City leaders, residents, public land administrators, trail enthusiasts, and other stakeholders to describe the potential trail system and to develop a statement of overall objectives, goals, and actions. The Plan will serve as a “Master Plan” in compliance with the Greater Minnesota Regional Parks and Trails Commission, a primary potential funding partner.
