Yawkey Unit Connecting Trail

The Cuyuna Connecting Trail would be a 5-mile looping, one-way trail featuring flow, rollers and berms, ideal for adventurous families and new cyclists to experience. This trail will connect the Yawkey Unit of trails to the City of Cuyuna and the Pumptrack, which is currently not accessible through the trail system at all. The Cuyuna Connecting Trail would also provide Cuyuna residents the option of mountain biking to and from Crosby-Ironton schools, without riding on the highway. Safe. Convenient. Fun!

Price: $264,000
(The Crew has raised $132,000)


Cuyuna Hills

Looking for a backcountry adventure surrounded by towering oak trees and natural landscape? The Cuyuna Hills trail will be a 10-mile trail unlike anything currently within the Cuyuna Country State Recreation Area. Currently the longest individual singletrack trail in Cuyuna is less than 2 miles, making this expansion much needed, and anticipated. Cuyuna Hills will be located on Crow Wing County Recreation Land, adjacent to the city of Cuyuna. Once constructed, this will place the city of Cuyuna within the singletrack system, providing expanded cycling opportunities and enhancing accessibility to the city’s pumptrack.

Price: $264,000
(The Crew needs to raise $132,000)


Manual Mine Singletrack Gravity Flow Trail

If you like Cuyuna’s Screamer, Sand Hog and Bob Sled trails, you’ll love the intermediate-level gravity flow trail we’re cooking up. Located north of Crosby and south of Cuyuna in the Yawkey Unit, this trail will be 3 miles of pure enjoyment. The addition of this gravity flow trail to our system will contribute to the advancement of our Ride Center ranking, putting Cuyuna among the top singletrack mountain bike trail systems in the world.

Price: $111,000
(The Crew needs to raise $55,000).


A 21st Century Vision for a 21st Century Cuyuna

More than 80,000 cyclists have visited the Cuyuna Lakes Mountain Bike Trails in the first four years of their existence. Not bad for 25 miles of singletrack red dirt, but we’re just getting started.

We have a Master Vision for trails that will turn the Cuyuna Lakes Area into an international mountain biking destination. But first, we need your help.

Through a generous matching grant from the E.W. Hallett Trust, it is our goal to raise $355,000, or $670,000 in matching funds, to expand our trail system substantially. If we meet our goal, those trails we’ve all come to know and love will get bigger and better than ever before. It starts right here, with you. For the love of Cuyuna, invest now!

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.

Let’s do this. #ForCuyuna
