Lake Wobegon Trail

The Lake Wobegon Trail is a 46 mile long, 10 foot wide, bituminous surfaced hike-and-bike pathway. The trail, which opened on September 30, 1998, extends from the city of St. Joseph to the city of Osakis. The trail runs on the MN/DOT rail corridor formerly owned by Burlington Northern Railroad Company. The trail has grown substantially since it was first opened and further additions to the trail are continuing to be planned. The trail has already seen a lot of use by bicyclists, snowmobilers, roller-skiers, roller bladers, and of course, walkers.
