Bike tour to take place Saturday

A bicycle tour on the Central Lakes Trail will take place this Saturday, August 28.

The public is invited to join the naturalist from Lake Carlos State Park for a bike ride down the Central Lakes Trail from Big Ole Central Park to Garfield and back.

The tour will take off at 10 a.m. from Big Ole and arrive in Garfield at approximately 12:30 p.m.

The trail follows an old railroad right of way that preserves prairie species and provides beautiful views of the lakes and hills of central Minnesota landscape.

The plan is to make several stops along the way to explore interesting features and plants.

When the group reaches Garfield, riders may head back on their own, or eat at one of the establishments in town. The ride is 16 miles round trip. A helmet is strongly encouraged.
