Organization: Cuyuna Lakes Trails Association
Type: Bike Path
A $10,000 grant helped the Cuyuna Lakes Trail Association construct two sections of paved trail that connect an elementary school, a senior housing facility, and a community center to the five miles of existing trail in Crosby, Minnesota. When complete, the 39-mile Cuyuna Lakes State Trail will link to the popular Paul Bunyan Trail as well as an IMBA Ride Center currently under development, enabling people to extend their rides and introducing bike-path enthusiasts to the sport of mountain biking. Our funding leveraged grants from several local foundations and trusts as well as a state bond for the trail system, which is a priority project for Congressman Jim Oberstar.
