:: Rail-Trails Minnesota
A new, full-color guide in the official Rail-Trails series covers 48 outstanding multi-use trails in Minnesota.
Whether you’re looking for a trail for a leisurely stroll, a bike ride with the family, or something a bit more challenging, you’ll find it in this comprehensive trail guide highlighting the best, most highly rated trails in Minnesota. Many of the trails were converted from unused railroad corridors to become some of the best multiuse rail-trails in the state. In this guidebook, experts from Rail-to-Trails Conservancy present their final list of 48 of the best trails and rail-trails in Minnesota.
Experience first-hand how Minnesota earned the nickname “Land of 10,000 Lakes” by taking one of several paths through the various lake districts, including the 121-mile Paul Bunyan State Trail, one of the longest rail-trails in the United States. This amazing trail also connects to the Heartland State Trail, which takes travelers past many lakes, rivers, and streams; and the Cuyuna State Trail, which winds its way through pine forests along the shores of many of the state’s most beautiful lakes. The connecting trails of Central Lakes State Trail and Lake Wobegon State Trail offer additional views of the lakes.
Luce Line State Trail leads from urban Minneapolis west through Minnesota's rural landscape, traveling through suburbs, wooded stretches, across wetlands, near lakes, through tall-grass prairie remnants, and into the countryside over varying surfaces.
Although many of Minnesota’s trails are found in the eastern and central areas of the state, traversing the many lakes and waterways, a few gems can also be found in the western regions, offering a variety of vistas. In the southwest, Casey Jones State Trail runs through tallgrass prairie and wooded ravines. For more of an urban adventure, try the 34.5-mile Grand Forks–East Grand Forks Greenway in the northwest, which travels through Grand Forks, North Dakota, and East Grand Forks, Minnesota.
In addition to details about each trail,
also provides information about trail amenities, including rest rooms, parking facilities, and water fountains.
