Get outdoors on Minnesota trails. Our state is criss-crossed with thousands of miles of trails including hiking trails, biking trails, snowmobile trails, atv trails, cross-country skiing trails, and Minnesota water trails. 

Minnesota Hiking Trails

Wherever you are in our state you will find yourself near great Minnesota hiking trails. Hiking Minnesota can take you through our northern forests and along the shores of Lake Superior. You can also experience some of the best Minnesota hiking in the bluff country, our farming communities and the central lakes areas. Minnesota state parks offer more than 1,250 miles of hiking trails. And the Twins Cities metro area has amazing hiking trails that offer stunning scenery in a peaceful atmosphere.

Some of Minnesota's most beautiful, and least traveled, trails are found on public lands such as National Wildlife Refuges and Scientific and Natural Areas. 

Minnesota Bike Trails

Grab your bike and tour Minnesota trails. Many miles of abandoned rail beds have been converted into paved bike trails. In most areas there is nothing more difficult than gently rolling hills though in the southeastern part of the state, and some of the North Shore, you will find longer climbs.

You can bike the quiet forest trails in Minnesota National Forests and Minnesota State Parks. Enjoy rural farm scenery in central Minnesota farm country or southern Minnesota Amish country.
