The North Star Chapter of the Sierra Club plans three local summer bicycle outings on the Lake Wobegon and Central Lakes trails. Sierra Club outings welcome everyone.
The connected Lake Wobegon and Central Lakes Trails run past lakes and through prairies, marshes, and woodlands, so participants will see a large variety of seasonal wildflowers. For information about trailheads and times, as well as to receive notification in case of inclement weather, contact Kay Slama at (320) 796-5871, or
We will bike the Lake Wobegon Trail from St. Joseph to Albany and back Saturday, May 28. Optionally, bikers can take the two-mile Collegeville spur to St. John's University. Participants can also choose to camp overnight on the Mississippi River (advance reservation and deposit required), then bike south to Albany and back on the Holdingford spur Sunday, May 29.
The bicycle trip on Saturday, June 11, will run from Freeport to Sauk Centre and back along the Lake Wobegon Trail. On Saturday, Aug. 13, the outing will follow the Central Lakes Trail from Osakis to Alexandria and back.
The Sierra Club North Star Chapter represents more than 15,000 members across Minnesota. Inspired by nature, members work together to protect our communities and the planet.
