The Scout’s honor society, the Order of the Arrow, will bring around 200 Scouts and adult leaders from Minnesota, Wisconsin, Iowa and the Dakotas to Grand Marais this week.

The Associated Press reports that eight separate crews will construct new mountain biking trails near Grand Marais and Tofte, and improve sections of the Superior Hiking Trail. The event runs Today through Saturday.

The Superior Hiking Trail Association, Superior Cycling Association, Conservation Corps of Minnesota and Iowa, and International Mountain Biking Association are providing additional support and coordination.
