Northwestern Minnesota Short & Sweet Bike Trails

If you have an hour or an afternoon, these trails are for you. We post them here as we discover them, so check back soon.

Lake Bronson Trail: 2.5 Miles

Lake Bronson, MN

This short, paved trail connects the town of Lake Bronson with Lake Bronson State Park‘s visitor center and the Pioneer Cemetery.

Mi-Gi-Zi Trail: 14 miles

Cass Lake, MN

This loop around Pike Bay is easily accessible from the Heartland State Trail. Near Cass Lake, where the trail intersects with County Road 76, connect with the Mi-Gi-Zi Trail by riding about a half a mile east on a signed road route. Follow the 14-mile trail counterclockwise around Pike Bay’s beautiful shores and the Chippewa National Forest and arrive at a trailhead north of Pike Bay after about ten miles. From there, a signed bike route will take you back to the Heartland Trail on quiet city streets through Cass Lake.
