Paved Trails

In partnership with local communities, the North Dakota Parks and Recreation Department has three parks that offer paved trails connecting users from state parks to cities.

Missouri Valley Millennium Legacy Trail: This paved trail connects visitors of Fort Abraham Lincoln State Park to a number of historical, recreational, and cultural places along the Missouri River. The trail from the park into the City of Mandan stretches 2.9 miles. Bikers can access this trail at a number of spots along the park’s main road.  

Lake Metigoshe Paved Trail: This paved trail is an 11-mile loop that runs parallel to Lake Loop Road. Bikers can access this trail at the entrance of the park.

Cavlandic Trail: The Cavlandic trail runs from the city of Cavalier to Icelandic State Park. The trail is 6.5 miles one way and provides users access to a number of amenities in the city of Cavalier.
