Buffalo Hills Trail officially opens Tuesday


Buffalo Hills Trail, already a popular route for many bikers and walkers in south Brainerd, officially opens with a ribbon-cutting set for 5 p.m. Tuesday.

The trail includes a 2.15-mile segment that links Buffalo Hills Park (on Buffalo Hills Lane) in south Brainerd to Kiwanis Park, which is nestled between Boom Lake and the Mississippi River, just south of Brainerd High School.

Outdoor enthusiasts have already discovered the paved trail and have voiced their approval.
