Shooting Star Recreational Trail
From the northwestern end near Austin's
Nature Center just off I-90 the trail's nearly 30-route runs
southeast generally along MN Hwy 56
through the towns of Rose Creek,
Lake Louise State Park before it ends at the
eastern trailhead. Rest stops are placed every few miles. NOTE: for trail
users there is no admission fee at the state park.
[At the northwest end]
Take Exit 184 off Interstate 90 and turn south
onto MN Hwy 56 toward Rose Creek. The trail begins just in a quarter mile
and runs along the west side of the highway. In another year or so, it should be
completed from that corner to the east side entrance of the Hormel Nature Center
trail off Exit 181, 28th Street on the east side of Austin.
[At the southeast end]
The trail begins in LeRoy on MN 56, 7 miles west of
US63 at the MN-IA state line. Turn west onto MN Hwy 56 and look for the trailhead
next to the school's athletic field.
