The Heartland Trail was the first rail to trail projects in the country. It is a 49 mile, paved multiple use trail that goes from Park Rapids to Cass Lake. It is a beautiful biking trail in the summer and groomed for snowmobiling in the winter. This trail goes directly through the heart of Akeley where you will find a parking area with outdoor restrooms.
Located between the City Campground (see the lodging page) and the boat landing, our beach has a playground, lots of sand and a raft. During the summer it is the location of the SAFE Program for kids.
