The West Central Blogger is always looking for regional treasures that span the length and breadth of west central Minnesota. The Central Lakes Trail is a perfect--and quite literal--example. This 55-mile, 14-foot wide paved path runs straight through the heart of lakes and prairies country, extending from Fergus Falls to Osakis.
Now, there is a Web site and group dedicated to the promotion and enhancement of the trail. Collectively, they're called "CentralLakesTrail.com." Maps, event listings, photos, and information about the communities you can visit along the way are available on the Web site. Make plans to visit the site--and the trail--soon!
