The Casey Jones State Trail has the distinction of being the first trail authorized to be a state trail in Minnesota. It currently exists in three, unconnected segments with the plan to eventually connect them. The longest segment runs for 13 miles starting in Pipestone, Minn, but only 5 miles are paved. Another 6-mile, paved, loop segment runs from Lake Shetek State Park to Currie, Minn. The final segment is a natural-surface trail running for 2.5 miles starting in Lake Wilson, Minn.
