Land Sale Irks North Shore Bike Trail Supporters

ST. PAUL (AP) – Minnesota is putting $3.3 million worth of property up for sale next week, including a parcel on Lake Superior where outdoors advocates had hoped to put a state bike trail.

The sale of school trust fund land marks the first time most of the parcels have been on the auction block. Most are lakeshore properties and the money will go to boost funding for schools.

Plans to sell 65 acres near Silver Bay have drawn opposition from supporters of the Gitchi-Gami State Trail. Without an easement to allow the trail to be built after the land is sold, they say, there’s no guarantee that part of the trail could be built.

The Department of Natural Resources prefers the trail be built west of Highway 61.
