Ramstad / North Shore Trail
Ramstad Trail to be Dedicated
Join the DNR and members of MnUSA as the North Shore Trail is dedicated as the C.J. Ramstad/North Shore Trail. The ceremony will take place at the C. J. Ramstad/North Shore Trail Martin Road parking lot in Duluth on Sept. 30 at 11 a.m.
The name change was suggested by past MnUSA president and Region 7 director Greg Sorenson, proposed by Rep. David Dill and Sen. Tom Bakk and got buy-in from the Minnesota DNR. It is one of the few snowmobile trails in the state that bears a person's name. The re-naming of the trail took place in 2009 but it is now official on signage and maps.
Ramstad, the former editor and publisher of Minnesota Snowmobiling and motorized recreation advocate, died in 2007. The North Shore Trail was one of his favorite places to ride.
