Along the Trail
Start your trip at the Red Baron Arena and Expo on the southeastern edge of town, where a tunnel takes you safely under HWY 23 and onto the campus of Southwest Minnesota State University.
The route starts north, then cuts west across the northern outskirts of Marshall. After the airport and the golf course, the trail starts heading southwest through a scenic stretch along the banks of the Redwood River, then along HWY 23.
You’ll pass through the small town of Lynd, MN before you begin your ascent to the edge of Camden State Park. After another mile on a very scenic and winding section, you’ll reach the park office and the end of the trail. There are plenty of benches to rest along the Camden Regional Trail and interpretive kiosks with maps tell the natural and historical story of the area.
Parking is available at the Red Baron Arena, Southwest Minnesota State University, Justice Park, Victory Park and the Camden State Park office. Water and restrooms are at Camden, Justice and Victory Parks.
Marshall’s network of on and off-street bike routes take you to some of the city’s numerous parks and Camden State Park offers about 5 miles of mountain bike trails.
