Help Needed! The Banadad Trail Association invites you to help get the Banadad Ski Trail ready for winter. We concentrating our clearing and trimming low hanging tree branches starting at the Banadad’s eastern trailhead.

According several Trail Association Members when they hiked the first mile of the Banadad from the eastern trailhead they came across nine large downed trees blocking the trail including a ten to twelve inch Aspen in a clump with several other trees it brought down  and on either side of this clump of trees were two more large downed Aspen. This section of the Banadad is all within the BWCA where all maintenance must be done using hand tools.

“If what we experienced on the eastern end of the trail holds for the rest of the Banadad,” stated Ted Young, maintenance administrator, “we have got a real job ahead of us. Please join us; we really need your help!”

Volunteers meet for the Trail Work Day at 9:00 am, Saturday, October 26, at Poplar Creek Guesthouse B&B, 11 Poplar Creek Drive (just off the Lima Grade) Gunflint Trail. Hand tools and lunches will be provided to all volunteers. Wear sturdy clothing and boots.  

After the work session volunteers and friends of the Banadad are inviting to return to Hestons Lodge, 579 South Gunflint Road for the Banadad Trail Association’s fifth Annual Meeting followed by a pizza dinner cooked in Heston’s wood fired-outdoor oven and social hour.
