While staying in your Brainerd cabin is bound to be a delight, there’s much to enjoy from your surroundings as well! Visitors that head this way find Brainerd and the surrounding regions ideal for everything from boating and hiking to biking, fishing, golfing, and entertainment parks for the whole family.
Let’s start with the lakes—after all, they’re probably the reason you’re headed this way! One after another, the lakes in the Brainerd region are some of the prettiest around. You can easily enjoy a day spent just lounging on their shores, enjoying a picnic lunch, and taking endless swims. If you prefer to get out on the water, you have many options. People-powered favorites around here include kayaking and paddleboarding, which are both great family-friendly ways to explore the lakes at your own pace. If you prefer to be motorized, choose from jet skis, ski boats, and pontoon boats, all of which you’ll find available to rent around here.
If you feel like exploring on shore, take advantage of some of the region’s amazing rail-to-trail paths. The Paul Bunyan Trail winds through 120 miles of some of Minnesota’s best scenery, and it’s paved for easy walking or cycling. You’ll also find fabulous mountain biking and hiking trails at the Cuyuna Mine Pits, a series of beautiful man-made lakes in old mining pits, which are popular spots today for a variety of water sports, including scuba diving!
Thrill seekers may want to increase their speed and elevation while viewing the Brainerd Lakes region; if so, check out the Brainerd Zip Line Tour! This 2.5-hour tour takes you on seven zip lines flying high above this beautiful terrain and finishes with an optional 50-foot freefall experience. Now that’s exciting!
