NW MN Minnesota Northwest
Cass Lake 1  Mi-Ge-Zi Trail    13m      
  The Mi-Ge-Zi trail, completed in June of 2003, runs 13 miles of absolutely beautiful pavement around Lower Pike Bay in Cass Lake, MN. Parking at the MNDot rest stop on Highway 2, cross under the bridge and pick up the trail heading east. At 2.5 miles, head south thru the woods over a gentle rolling trail, passing resorts, the National Forest Campground and a few private cabins back to Highway 371. The trail then runs north back to Cass Lake on the west side of 371. Follow the signs back to the beginning. Suitable for beginners. (Submitted by Marsh Jones) 
Moorhead 2  Viking Ship Park    2K      
  Newly paved and lighted trail following the Red River of the North with a definite Nordic feel. The course is mostly flat but there are some small rolling hills in the approximately 2k of lighted trail. Viking Ship Park is named for the Viking ship replica Hjemkomst that is on display at the adjacent Hjemkomst Center. The ship was built in the area and sailed to Norway in 1982. The park is also the home of an authentic replica of a Norwegian Stave Church. This beautiful wooden church is illuminated by flood lights at night, so this is the perfect place to get in that "inspirational" after-work rollerski in the fall. The trail also connects to the Dike East/Lindenwood trail system in Fargo via a floating bridge across the Red River. (Submitted by John Pfund) 
Park Rapids 3  Itasca State Park    27K       218-266-2114
  Trail consists of paved bike trail and one way traffic on "wilderness drive" encircling beautiful Lake Itasca, headwaters of the Mississippi. (Submitted by Phil Rogers) Pros: Very scenic and also challenging in length and terrain. Cons: Trail often has pine needles and other debris along with current new construction. Several downhills are very wicked. 
Park Rapids/Walker 4  Heartland State Trail    27.0m      
  One of the first rail-to-trails in the country -- runs from Park Rapids to Walker. 
Richwood 5  CR 26 - Richwood Loop    10m      
  My favorite road route in this area is just south of Richwood. About 10 miles north of Detoit Lakes. I start at the intesection of co. 21 and co. 26. I head east all the way to Tamarac Wildlife Refugee where the pavement ends and turns to gravel. The course is relatively flat with just a few small hills until the end where there is a nice long gradual 3-6 minutes climb. It is a great spot to do a hill workout since there isn't much traffic on the road. Total round trip distance is about 9 miles. The first 2.5 miles was paved last year. The road goes past a few lakes and in the evening hours it is almost certain to see deer, lots of waterfowl, timberwolves and maybe a moose. (Submitted by Jay Richards)
