The Route of the Hiawatha trail is the crown jewel of all rail-to-trail projects in the country. Over 15 miles of railroad track has been converted into a beautiful biking and walking trail with a gentle 2 percent downhill grade. There are ten tunnels and seven trestle bridges up to 230 feet high. The 1.7 mile-long St. Paul Pass tunnel is a highlight of the trail. Begin your ride at Lookout Pass Ski Area where mountain bike rentals, including helmets and lights, and an optional return shuttle service are available. Fees go toward maintaining the trail, constructed as part of the "Rails to Trails" program, which converts unused railways to trails.
