Glacial Lakes State Trail  (Minnesota)
    The Glacial Lakes Trail, while short in length at only 18 miles, goes through some of Minnesota's prime resort and fishing country. The Trail is located on a former Burlington Northern Railroad grade, and is generally level and wheelchair accessible. Much of the trail runs along Green Lake, which is several miles across and quite scenic.

  The segment between Willmar and New London has a parallel grass treadway for horseback riding.  From New London to Hawick is a 6 mile long trail surfaces with crushed granite for hiking, biking, and horseback riding.

  Though much of the area has been cultivated, remnants of virgin prairie, wetlands, and scattered woodlots can still be found along the railroad right-of-way.  White tail deer, many small mammals, and various bird species  can be seen along the trail.

  Within Kandiyohi County, the trail is groomed for winter snowmobile use, however studded tracks are prohibited on the asphalt surface.  No snowmobile use is allowed on the future trail in Stearns County at this time.  The Glacial Lakes State Trail connects to Sibley State Park via 3 miles of paved shoulder along County Road 148.
