A fresh ribbon of asphalt west of Christmas Point Road southeast of Walker was the first indication last week that 2.1 miles of the Shingobee Connection Trail was being paved.

The Phase 1 section begins 7.5 miles north of Hackensack where the Paul Bunyan heads west toward Akeley. From there, the connection trail heads north on the old railroad grade to a point just south of Hwy. 371 and east of Shingobee Bay. In the next 3-4 years, Phases 2-5 will be built, bringing the trail into Walker.
