City Reschedules Trail Opening Celebration

Hermantown, Minn. – The City of Hermantown has rescheduled a celebration marking the opening of the first section of their city-wide trail system for Tuesday, September 14. The original celebration was postponed due to impending weather and poor air quality due to the fires impacting our region.

Boulder Trail winds through Stebner Park, stretching from Maple Grove Road south to a temporary terminus at Hermantown Road. The section of trail was completed over the past two years as part of the Section 24 Trunk Sewer Spur project, an effort that will open than 230 acres in the City’s eastern edge to development opportunities.

The long-term plan for the trail system features a city-wide connection that will stretch from beyond the Essentia Wellness Center and Hermantown schools to the City’s southern border, before extending through Proctor and linking to the Willard Munger State Trail.

Boulder Trail is a 10-foot wide, non-motorized paved trail, which is expected to be maintained for year-round use and availability.

The September 14 celebration will be held in Stebner Park and feature a brief presentation and ribbon cutting shortly after 5 p.m., followed by music, food truck options, and ample opportunity to experience the new trail.
