The Centennial Trail In Minnesota Leads You Straight To An Abandoned Mine
By Trent Jonas|Published April 08, 2023
Trent Jonas came to Minnesota to attend college - and never left. He's a Twin Cities-based writer with a BA in English and a MFA in creative writing, a Minnesota Master Naturalist, and the proud father of two adult children. With more than a decade of freelance writing experience under his belt, Trent is often out exploring his favorite topics: Minnesota's woods, lakes, and trails. Rhubarb pie is his weakness, so discovering new diners is also a passion.
The Centennial Trail is a pretty easy hike – and leads to something you wouldn’t typically expect at the edge of a national forest wilderness area. If your legs are up for another few miles of hiking, the trail head for the Magnetic Rock Trail is basically just across the road, 300 yards or so west. Otherwise, Poplar Haus is only about 20 minutes away if it’s time to hang up the trekking poles for the day.
Have you hiked the Centennial Trail? Is there another Minnesota hiking trail that leads to surprising destinations?
