nicely paved trail that winds through gorgeous MN- I hop on near Hackensack and go up to Walker and back. it is mostly flat with a few areas of mild elevation to keep it interesting. There are often lots of flies, but otherwise a great trail

Wife dropped me and my bicycle off in Brainerd and picked me up in Walker. It's great as a point to point bike ride as it takes you through many small towns and lakes in the heart of Minnesota. Walker is a pretty cool little town and I would recommend staying overnight at Chase on the Lake. It's a shame there aren't better restaurant options though. Once you get close to Walker there are a few other trails that branch off, so you might want to freshen up on the map in that area before heading out. Also the trail is in pretty good shape, but there are so many trees that there will probably be a decent amount of debris, so just be mindful because a simple acorn could really ruin your day.

Great all around trail for activities such as biking, birding, running, walking, and rollerblading. Enjoyable for so many people.
