Heartland Trail in September

Photographs in this posting show off fall scenery near Nevis, Minnesota along the Heartland Trail, a Rails-to-Trails trail for biking/running/walking that extends from Park Rapids to Cass Lake (49 miles). Also in our area is the Paul Bunyan Trail, a Rails-to-Trails route between Crow Wing State Park and Bemidji (115 miles).

The Rails-to-Trails Conservancy (RTC) promotes conversion of abandoned rail corridors to bike/running paths across the country. As a frequent user of these paths in Minnesota and other states, I’d like to advocate that people get out and use them. They are tremendous resources, and seem to me to be under-utilized.
