ST. CLOUD -- Stearns County Commissioners will be asked to approve a request for state bonding money to extend the Lake Wobegon Trail.

The $825,000 would be used to extend the trail into Waite Park.

Currently, the trail ends in St. Joseph. The 3.2-mile extension would end at River's Edge Park in Waite Park.

The goal is to eventually extend the trail to the Mississippi River in St. Cloud.

The project is a top priority for the Stearns County Parks Department 5-year Comprehensive Plan.
