Brainerd Lakes: A Lively Winter Playground
Snowmobiling gives visitors a thrilling way to zip across the frozen region. Rent a snowmobile at Cragun's Resort, then cut across Gull Lake to the Paul Bunyan Trail, a summer bike route that follows an old railroad corridor. The trail stretches through 14 small towns from Brainerd to Bemidji, about 100 miles north. The area has 1,200 miles of snowmobile-ready terrain.
