The next phase of construction on the Mill Towns Trail will begin soon. Come join trail supporters on Tuesday, Nov. 13 at 4pm to celebrate the groundbreaking. The event will be held at the White Sands Trailhead at 900 Lyndale Ave. N in Faribault.
Like a puzzle, the newest segment of the Mill Towns State Trail involved many pieces fitting together—just so—to complete the picture. Talks began in 2010 between the DNR, three private landowners, two counties, managers of a dam and a highway. This year, with the commitment of trail proponents, the pieces came together to make a great addition to the state trail system.
