Lake Wobegon Trail
This is a trail which officially opened September 30, 1998.
We found the trail accidentally, saw it from I-94 near
Albany and exited to investigate. We can spot those bike
trails!! The first question I asked was "Is there
REALLY a Lake Wobegon?" The answer, of course, was
the trail was given the name because this is the region
Garrison Keillor talks about in his Wobegon stories."
Keillor was there for the grand opening, and it made the
This a 28-mile long, 10-foot wide paved trail which links
the communities of Sauk Centre, Melrose, Freeport, Albany
and Avon. It is designed for bicycles, walking, snowmobiles,
rollerblades, skateboards, jogging and roller skates. There
is a trail head located in at Albany's Legion Memorial Park
which provides parking, toilet facilities and a picnic area.
We thought it was great!
There is now an official Lake Wobegon website.
