Time of year
I walked this trail in 3-5 mile increments all summer. Nice combination of sun and shade. Can also access the North Country trail from here for a bit more challenging hike.
I have ridden the Central Lakes trail from Sauk Centre to Evansville. The stretch from Alex to Osakis goes amongst lakes and farmland with a challenging railroad grade near the Osakis end. From there to Sauk has alot of roadside riding. The stretch from Alex to Garfield is…
We walked trail and more towards night it tends to have more kids on the trail in groups in some parts of the trail. We had no issues though
Wide, flat, paved trail in the woods and thru small towns. Very nice ride. Some construction when we rode and some mud from recent rains, but a trail I’ll do again.
Very nice trail. It is tared and ready to walk, jog or bike. There is a couple parks along the trail as well to explore..
