Investing in the future


Thanks to the generosity of the Hallett Charitable Trusts, we received a grant from the E.W. Hallett Trust, matching any funds raised for the Cuyuna Lakes Mountain Bike Trails up to $355,000. This gives us the opportunity to grow Cuyuna like never before.


Put simply, any funds we raise, up to $355,000, will be matched by the E.W. Hallett Trust, making our earning potential $670,000 — all for the trails. Doubling your money doesn’t get much easier.

All you need to do is make a tax deductible donation. If you love the Cuyuna trails and want to see more of the red dirt magic come to fruition, now is a great time to invest.

By expanding our trails, we’ll be expanding our region’s economic impact from $2 million annually to $21 million annually through additional trails, additional tourism, the strengthening of our current businesses, and the recruitment of new complementary businesses to our region. Our vision is to allow this world-class outdoor recreation amenity to be a leading recruiting and retention tool, bringing the best employers and employees to our region.

“We love to see the community working together to achieve a common goal —
furthering the success of our region and everyone who lives here.”
