Park Info
12495 Elk Lake Road ~ An abandoned railroad grade, is a paved trail that runs from County Road 1 on the south end to the northern city limits, approximately 4.75 miles.

A pedestrian tunnel exists under County Road 33 to allow unimpeded travel of the 4.5 mile trial though Elk River.

The trail is a part of and also has access into Woodland Trails, a beautiful 427 acre park with dense woods, prairies and wetlands. The park offers many paved and unpaved trials for year round uses such as biking, hiking and skiing.

The trail also offers connection to Proctor Road to the east via “Top of the World” trails. These trails are not paved and are for hiking only.
