New Year's Resolution at Leech Lake Minnesota

It’s New Year’s Day and nearly everyone is looking to start their new year’s resolutions. Most people are going to set a goal of self-improvement like going to the gym more or reducing your stress. Others are going to set goals that focus on their finances or spending more time with family and friends.

 

What if we told you that you could set one goal to accomplish all the above?

 

Planning adventures to and around Leech Lake should be your New Year’s resolution. Here’s why:

 

“Getting in Shape”

Leech Lake is surrounded by healthy outdoor activities including biking, hiking, and cross-country skiing trails. In the summertime, you can spend your days swimming or kayaking. There are plenty of ways to stay active when you plan an outdoor adventure to Leech Lake.

 

“Spend More Time With Loved Ones”

We can’t think of a better way to spend time with your family and friends than renting a cabin and spending the days out fishing and your nights around the campfire. Many of our resorts even offer boat or ice house rentals.

 

“Save Money”

Gym memberships are expensive and if we are being honest, how often do you even use it? But guess what, hiking trails are free!

 

“Be Less Stressed”

We would bet anything that enjoying a campfire, listening to the crickets chirp outside your door, sunbathing on the beach, or relaxing in a boat on the lake would help to alleviate some of your stress!

Leech Lake is a prime destination for your next sled ride. With miles and miles of snowmobiling trails, there is no doubt that you and your group will have the time of your lives.

Snowmobiling trails near Leech Lake Minnesota

Leech Lake offers multiple snowmobile trails where you can explore some of the most beautiful areas in Minnesota. From the Chippewa National Forest to the Paul Bunyan State Trail you’ll find that there are so many trail and so little time.

 

Here are a few of our favorite trails:

 

  • Heartland State Trail: This 49-mile trail was one of the first rail-to-trail projects in the country. This state trail also connects with the Paul Bunyan State Trail.

  • Paul Bunyan State Trail: This trail is 115 miles long, with the exception of a couple short on-road connections through the cities of Baxter and Bemidji. The Paul Bunyan trail extends from Crow Wing State Park to Lake Bemidji State Park. It is the longest state trail in Minnesota and the longest paved rail-trail in the country.

  • Eastern Region Chippewa Forest: With more than 315 miles of trails in the Chippewa National Forest you’ll see scenic lakes, woodland areas, and frozen wetlands.

Don’t forget to book your lodging on your snowmobiling adventure. Our resorts and inns are some of the best in the State and you can always find a great deal.
