Great Northern Trail Expansion

The Great Northern Trail is a newly expanded paved surface popular for biking, inline skating and walking.  The paved length extends 8.5 miles from the south end in Elk River to Lion’s Park in Zimmerman and is only the start of a vision to complete trail construction on the entirety of the original 30 mile historic railroad bed where it would terminate in Milaca.  Partners have been working together to solicit input on the future expansion and plan according to community needs. 

Users can enjoy the new 10’ wide bituminous trail for walking, running, bicycling, inline skating, bird watching and wildlife viewing!”
