List of hiking trails in Minnesota facts for kids

Kids Encyclopedia Facts

This is a list of hiking trails in Minnesota. To be included in this list, the trail must be in the U.S. state of Minnesota, and it must be designated for hiking by a primary source or be notable for hiking in credible secondary sources. It is not sufficient for the trail to merely accommodate pedestrian uses like walking or running to be on this list. While this list may include some multi-use trails and paved paths, hiking must be a predominant type of activity for the trail, which deliberately excludes many shared bicycle paths, sidewalks, snowmobile/ATV trails, urban walking areas, and other types of non-automobile paths. Hiking is considered a recreational activity that fits Classes 1-3 of the Yosemite Decimal System.
