Free phone app available for Wis. forest users


MADISON (AP) -- A free application for iPhone, iPad and iPod users is now available to provide trail locations, maps and other information about the Northern Highland-American Legion State Forest in far northeastern Wisconsin.

The state Department of Natural Resources says the app was developed in partnership with the North Lakeland Discovery Center in Manitowish Waters and is available through the Discovery Center's website.

State officials say the app will reduce the number of paper trail maps the forest must print. That saves money that can be used for other needs.

The 225,000-acre forest attracts about 3 million visitors a year. It was established in 1925 and features 930 lakes and 250 miles of rivers and creeks.
