Freeborn Waseca Regional Trail Plan

Freeborn and Waseca Counties are exploring the potential of connecting the cities of Albert Lea and Waseca with a regional trail. The trail would utilize an abandoned railroad line that parallels highway 13 and connects the cities of Albert Lea, Manchester, Hartland, New Richland and Waseca. Ultimately, the goal would be for this regional link to connect two State trails – the Blazing Star State Trail and the Sakatah Singing Hills State Trail. We need your help to envision what this trail should look like, how it would best serve the residents of Freeborn and Waseca Counties, and how it can attract Tourists to our area. We are looking several different ways to use this regional link, and your response to the following short survey will help blaze a trail!
