Future Trail in Albert Lea

Nice article in the Albert Lea Tribune about the proposed rail-to-trail conversion between Albert Lea and Hartland, MN:

Though the work is moving slow — it always does for trails — Freeborn County officials are making steady progress in their efforts to acquire 12.65 miles of abandoned Union Pacific Railroad line. The hope is to turn the land into a multi-use trail that would go from Albert Lea to Hartland.


The abandoned rail corridor darts through a variety of settings and offers users a glimpse into commercial, industrial, residential and even country life. There has been a lot of talk about the tourism potential of a trail. But what some homeowners might not yet realize is the impact a bike trail could have on the value of their home.

The article touches on impacts to property values, tourism, safety, history, and funding.
