The paved bicycle trail in Croft Mine Park has continued to receive rave reviews since its 2006 debut for its rolling terrain and beautiful vistas. The bike trails span 5.3 miles from Crosby to Riverton. Continued development of the paved trail includes linkage to the new Cuyuna Lakes Trail. The second phase will extend from east Brainerd at Lum Park through the rugged Cuyuna area of Crosby-Ironton and eventually all the way to Aitkin.
