Lake Wobegon Trail Rides

Each year enjoy three bike rides on the Lake Wobegon Trails sponsored by the Lake Wobegon Trails Association. ​ The rides are family oriented rides, tours really, not intended to be a race but a chance to get out and enjoy a wonderful day in Central Minnesota on one of the best trails in the state.
