The Central Lakes Trail provides 14'-wide paved trails from the trailhead in DeLagoon Park 55 miles SE to Osakis. For a longer ride, connect in Osakis to the Lake Wobegon Trail and ride another 46 miles to St. Joseph, MN. Trail maps of both trails are available at the Fergus Falls Chamber of Commerce. To find the trailhead in Fergus Falls go into DeLagoon Park, past the baseball fields, and into the campground area. There you will find parking, restrooms, and trail access. We are in the process of adding new signage there and paving the access route into the park.
For questions about the City Park please call 218-332-5804. Camping is permitted there but no showers. For a list of hotels in the area, check our Accommodations section. Fergus Falls has bike rental at Central Lakes Cycle 218-739-5651.

They work tirelessly for bike advocacy, safety, citizen engagement and education. If you're in Fergus Falls you'll notice their work through events, signage, fix-it stations, bike racks and volunteerism. We're proud to be a bike-friendly community, thanks in large part to the work of Pedal Fergus Falls.
