MN Bike Trails - Paul Bunyan Trail System

The Paul Bunyan Trail is the longest MN Bike trail at 120-miles and it connects the Heartland Trail, the Blue Ox Trail and the Cuyuna State Trail.  The portion of the Minnesota bike trail from Guthrie south through Laporte toward Walker is now paved and the segment from Brainerd/Baxter south to Crow Wing State Park was paved in July 2014--providing the final paved link. With the paving of these segments, the Paul Bunyan Trail now yields 120 miles of continuously paved MN bike trails from Crow Wing State Park just south of Brainerd MN to Lake Bemidji State Park in Bemidji Minnesota!
