Cuyuna Lakes Paved Trail
The Cuyuna Lakes Trail is a paved trail project underway to connect the communities of Aitkin, Cuyuna Lakes and Brainerd. Locally, the Cuyuna Lakes Trail extends from Deerwood to Riverton. 

This is an exceptionally scenic route through the Cuyuna Country State Recreation Area where it offers beautiful views of crystal clear lakes and connects to the world class mountain bike trails.
There are also paved segments of the Cuyuna Lakes Trail in Aitkin and Brainerd. In Brainerd the trail joins the Paul Bunyan Trail. 

Mississippi River Trail
The Cuyuna Lakes Trail also offers a route for the Mississippi River Trail. The MRT is the nationally designated bikeway that will follow off-road trails and roadways from Lake Itasca to New Orleans.
