Crow Wing proposes bike trail connecting to Cuyuna state recreation area

The Crow Wing County Land Services Department wants to hear from the public about a proposal to develop 11.64 miles of new trails in east-central Crow Wing County, within Cuyuna and Rabbit Lake Township, as a designated single-track mountain bike recreational trail system.

The trail would connect and link to more than 30 miles of state and regionally significant existing mountain bike trails to the southwest, in the Cuyuna Country State Recreation Area, and create a contiguous loop of 40.64 miles of designated single-track mountain bike trails in the county.

The deadline to submit written comments is 5 p.m. Jan. 20. Comments will be responded to in writing and presented to the Crow Wing County Board prior to its decision on the proposal.
