Guthrie MN – Paul Bunyan Trail Towns
With many small scenic towns located along this portion of the trail you just might look for a real estate agent while you’re in town. Starting from Guthrie at mile marker 82.4 and ending at mile 96 with Nary just in-between at mile 87.6.
This small community and township, 436 population at 2010, are named for Archibald Guthrie, the contractor who built the railroad in this area. As should be expected, the population of the settlement is much smaller than it was during the peak logging years. However, Guthrie offers much potential for an enjoyable trail experience.
The community is characterized by a near level landscape and a mixture of forest and open countryside. A cluster of houses, former business buildings, and a vacant church identifies the center of development. Of major importance to trail development are the civic minded people in the community and the attractive park bordering the trail route. A striking feature of the park is a stand of very large white pine.
