The Central Lakes Trails are beautifully maintained and offer a great place to walk, run or bike. Plenty of public access points and the scenery, lakes, parks and wildlife are really lovely. Not just a summer activity! Especially pretty in the fall.

We just did a short jaunt from Nelson to Osakis. Easy 6 mile ride. Fun to look around Osakis and visit the Panther distillery. Anxious to do more of the trail.

You can jump on this bike trail in Alexandria, Ashby, and other towns along the trail. Most of the trails is away from the highway --compared to the Wobegon trail which has long segments next to I 94.

A great trail to ride. We try to ride 3-4 times monthly. Much wildlife. We also invite our friends to join us. Many, many miles of paved trail.
