MN Bike Trail in Minnesota

The Paul Bunyan Trail is the longest MN Bike trail in Minnesota at 120-miles and it connects the Heartland Trail, the Blue Ox Trail and the Cuyuna State Trail.  The portion of the 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 a continuously paved bike trail from Crow Wing State Park just south of Brainerd MN to Lake Bemidji State Park in Bemidji Minnesota--a total of 120 paved miles!

These Minnesota Bike Trails offer all kinds of exciting outdoor adventures including biking, hiking, and roller-blading.  There are some areas available for bike-in camping and rental bicycles are available at many of the 15 connecting towns.

A shuttle service is provided for those adveturers who want to leave their vehivles behind for trail camping or a long-distance bike trail ride from one connecting Paul Bunyan Trail town to another.

The terrain of the Paul Bunyan Trail ranges from flat and open to hilly and scenic for any level of bike rider.  Along the 120 miles of trail there are many areas to stop and rest and enjoy the beauty of nature in Northern Minnesota.  Hey, bring along your swimming suit and take a dip in any of the numerous lakes the the Paul Bunyan Bike Trail parallels.  If you like to 'rough' it there are many campsites to pitch a tent, but if you prefer to have a few more human comforts, visit the resorts and hotels along the Paul Bunyan Trail.

Stop in Hackensack, MN during your Paul Bunyan Trail advanture for the chance to "meet" Paul Bunyan's Girlfriend Lucette!

And when Old Man Winter blows in, fire up your Polaris snowmobile, your Arctic Cat, or your Ski Doo and have a real adventure on the Trail. Previously, studded tracks were not allowed on the Paul Bunyan Trail; however, the Stud Restriction has been lifted and the entire trail is now open without restrictions.

Have Fun, Big Paul
