The Hiawatha Trail & St. Paul Pass Tunnel will be closed as the Forest Service has contracted a major maintenance project starting Sept. 18. Trail will Re-Open on Friday May 24, 2024.
Please do not try to ride the trail as conditions will be hazerdous and lots of staff and vehicles will be out there working on the road surface both in the tunnels and along the trail.
In addition as a general warning we close in mid Sept. as Hunting season opens in this remote forests, and we feel most guests will not find it enjoyable if your tranquility is disturbed by shots ringing out in the local woods.
Please make plans to use the trail when all services are available. Trail will re-open on May 24, & run 7 days a week thru Sept. 15, 2024.
We are working with the Forest Service to insure that the running race (Marathon, 1/2 Marathon and 10K) already scheduled for Sept. 30, 2023 can still move forward as scheduled.
Thank you for supporting the Hiawatha Trail. A portion of all fees collected go toward the necessary maintenance to keep this incredible trail open and available to the public.
