Help wanted for South Fowl Snowmobile Access

HELP WANTED! The Arrowhead Coalition for Multiple Use (ACMU) is seeking laborers to help complete the South Fowl Snowmobile Trail Access between McFarland and South Fowl lakes in the Hovland area. This new trail restores the Tilbury Trail, the historic connection between the two lakes for anglers, cabin owners and winter campers.

Workers are needed immediately to hike in to clear downed trees and brush. After September 21, the U.S. Forest Service will need assistance shoveling/moving rock to create gambion retaining walls to level side hills from a 20% grade to a safer 10% grade.

A great deal of work has been completed by U.S. Forest Service personnel, Minnesota Conservation Corps workers, Grand Portage Land Trust staff and ACMU volunteers, but a final push is now on to get the trail ready for use this coming winter.

Workers can choose their own hours and work individually or with a group. A stipend may be available, please contact us for information at 218-387-9844 or email

If you are unable to work on the trail but want to contribute to help pay workers, please send your donation to ACMU at PO Box 1060, Grand Marais, MN 55604.
