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!
The terrain of the Paul Bunyan Trail ranges from flat and open to
hilly and scenic for any level of bike rider. See for yourself
with our detailed bike trail maps! Along the 120 miles of
the trail there are many
areas to stop and rest and enjoy the beauty of nature in Northern
Minnesota. If you're traveling light or want to give a new bike
a try, The Brainerd Lakes Area offers bike rentals and a Paul Bunyan Trail Shuttle Service to get you and your bike where you
need to go!
While biking is the main event, don't forget that the Paul Bunyan
Trail is open year-round with loads of other recreational activities available. The Paul Bunyan Bike Trails offer
so much more than just beautiful scenery and paved trails, and in many
of the connecting towns you will find bike-in
camping, picnic areas, and rest shelters.
Have Fun, Big Paul
