The Minnesota DNR Trail Ambassador Program is an outstanding partnership between the Parks & Trails Division and ATV clubs across the state.
The "Minnesota DNR Volunteer Trail Ambassador Program" was established by the DNR Divisions of Enforcement, Parks & Trails and Forestry. The program exists to promote safe, environmentally responsible operation of OHVs through informational, educational contacts and monitoring efforts. Oversight and management of the program is the responsibility of the DNR Division of Enforcement, Safety/Education section.
About 200 volunteer, DNR-certified Trail Ambassadors monitor the State ATV Trails throughout the riding season. They visit with riders at trailheads and on the trails, answering questions and passing out OHV Regulation Books, Trail Atlases and other helpful materials. They also help keep the trails safe by reporting to the DNR damaged or missing signs, and obstacles such as downed trees and washouts, which are quickly repaired by the DNR or ATV clubs.
