2. Suggested good walking/biking routes on sidewalks, shared use trails, neighborhood and park footpaths, and quiet shared streets around Mahtomedi.
The maps join Avenza maps created by the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources, county parks, national parks and many others to help users navigate parks and trails.

A huge THANK YOU to Lake Links board member and Mahtomedi Area Green Initiative member Ian Harding, who designed the maps. They will be updated at least annually as the roads and trails change. Enjoy!
