The Swedish Immigrant Trail Continues to Grow!

The goal of the Swedish Immigrant Regional Trail Project is to build and maintain a 20 mile, multi-use, hard surface trail that provides a safe route for recreation and alternative transportation, while interpreting and celebrating the Swedish Immigrant History of Chisago County.

On August 4 the county extended the trail and put in a 160' bridge! This is a big step forward in reaching the county's goal.
