Fort Ripley Trail and Ripley Connection

Fort Ripley Trail and Ripley Connection

This Central Minnesota trail is primarily flat and easy to ride with an occasional rolling hill. The trail narrows and winds through rolling oak- and pine-covered hills near Sebie Lake, along the old Burlington Northern railroad grade. The Crow Wing South Loop connects Fort Ripley Trail to Brainerd and additional riding on the Pine Center Trails. Trails are provided by Crow Wing County and maintained by Central Minnesota Wheelers.
