The East-West Trail is a 1.6-mile trail to be located on the old Soo Line corridor and would be a continuation of the East-West trail built in 2008 that connects downtown to Fifth Street in Bemidji. Through extending the East-West Trail, users will be able to commute from the downtown and lakefront parks to County Road 11 and 15th Street Northwest.
