On National Trails Day, June 6th, hundreds came out to attend the ribbon cutting, have cake, listen to speeches and enjoy a sunny day on Minnesota's latest recreational destination, the Brown's Creek State Trail. It's only about six miles long, but makes a very important connection between the Gateway State Trail and downtown Stillwater.
