Nordic Ridge recreation trails to expand


The Nordic Ridge Recreation Area Trails in Crosslake will likely be expanded by 2-3 miles this year in hopes of putting the trail system and the city on the winter tourism destination map, Alden Hardwick of the PAL Foundation told the Crosslake City Council on Monday, April 14.

The six miles of trails currently run through municipal and Crow Wing County land near the Crosslake Community Center, offering skiing opportunities in the winter and hiking in the summer.
