Erik Wrede, water trails coordinator for the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources, said this has been a big year for the state's water trails.

The DNR has revamped its river-level reporting system to make it easier for boaters, canoeists and kayakers to check real-time water levels on the state water trails. The DNR also has launched an online interactive map so boaters and paddlers can customize their own maps.

The water trails system started in 1963 and has 4,400 miles on 32 mapped trails managed for canoeing, kayaking, boating and camping.
