Fantastic Biking Experience!  The Paul Bunyan State Trail is fully paved & travels many miles.  From our resort, you can bike the Paul Bunyan Scenic Byway to the Paul Bunyan State Trail (they connect approximately 5 miles away) or travel by car to access the trail.  Strollers, rollerblades, carts, walking, hiking.  Fantastic trail!


There are several trails in our area that will give you an intimate look at nature at her finest. Area trails are open to walking, biking, and rollerblading.

Access to the Paul Bunyan State Trail is just four miles away from our resort. This beautifully paved, 100-mile long trail travels through six communities and passes along the shores of 21 lakes, crosses nine rivers and streams and cuts through pristine pine forests and wild wetlands.

The Paul Bunyan State Trail has been designated for hikers, skaters and bicyclists of all ages and abilities.


Adjacent to the Towering Pines Resort wooded-hiking trail, our guests can access the Paul Bunyan National Scenic Byway which covers a 54-mile looped road route that travels both north around the Whitefish Chain and south along the north side of Pelican Lake.  In addition to this being an interesting drive-route, the expanded paved shoulder invites scenic biking, running and rollerblading.  Along the Paul Bunyan Scenic Byway you'll find the Veteran's Hiking Trail with their new 1.5 mile Wetland Walk, and the Uppgaard Wildlife Management Area .

The Paul Bunyan Scenic Byway has received National recognition!  This trail is good for biking or traveling to the kiosks by car.  Sites to see at each stop.  Check out the GIANT Paul Bunyan footprints at the Ideal Township Playground and Ballpark 2 miles from our resort!

Cuyuna Mountain Bike Trail System

The Cuyuna Mountain Bike Trail system officially opened in 2011.  The trail system includes 25 miles of mountain bike trails including four different levels of difficulty: Easiest, More Difficult, Most Difficult and Extremely Difficult.  Trails range from riding on flat gravel trail to a steep rocky terrain with cliffs and drops on the side.  




Bike Rental 



The Veterans Hiking Trail is dedicated to Jodi's (Towering Pines Resort)  grandfathers!  This walking/hiking trail leads through wooded areas & out over wetlands.  Discover the unique plants and unusual sounds a wetland offers.  At the end of the wooden walkway, take a moment to sit on the meditation bench for some quiet reflection.  The Veterans Walking trail is approximately 3 miles from our resort.
Bring your own bike or rent from one of the local businesses.  With the beautiful trees, Fall is an especially great time to bike our local trails.
The Uppguards Walking Trail is located on state land "never to be developed".  Along this trail you will find "pods" of different plants native to our area.  The walking bridge over water offers a great site of about a million dragonflies all different colors and sizes.  Amazing!  This walking trail offers a calm connection with nature.  The parking area is approximately 4 miles from our resort.
