The Bluffs Traverse trail-building project is a multi-year project that will improve hiking and biking trail options with an end goal of connecting Sugar Loaf Park, Garvin Heights, and Bluffside Park, aka Holzinger Trails. After years of fundraising and receiving permit approval from the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR) late last year, work on four new trails at Bluffside Park, totaling 5.36 miles of new trails, started this year. Currently, construction of a new downhill mountain bike trail has closed trails at the base of the bluff at Bluffside Park since last month. This new trail will be completed next week, according to Winona Outdoor Recreation Coordinator Alicia Lano, and work on another mountain bike trail and two multi-use trails will begin immediately after. Lano said all four trails will be completed by early October.
