  • ATVing

With the blueberry season fast approaching, the MN DNR website recommends looking for “blueberry bushes where jack pine grows. Best harvest is around July 4. Berries will ripen continuously until about the first week of August. These forest roads will take you through the heart of blueberry country: Krull, Nelson, Faunce-Butterfield, Hogsback-Obrien forest roads.”
