Thanks for the link to a fascinating article, SHC! I worked for a trailbuilding company for several years and am familiar with the wilderness area restrictions, and this article informs the reader of both the challenges of projects in designated wilderness areas as well as the difficulty of doing trail renovations on an open and active trail. Great read!

Thanks for sharing. Sounds like the local bears took an interest in the project, too!
"Gunflint Ranger District: Areas around Stairway Portage from Duncan to Rose, as well as campsites on Rose, Duncan, Daniels, Clearwater, Flour, and Caribou Lakes have all had multiple bear encounters in the past few weeks."
