The first stage of the Long Lake Trail was completed in 2008.
The second stage of the Long Lake Trail was completed in 2014. This 1/2 mile trail along the lake upgraded an old Highway that was know by current residents as Tin Can Alley.
The third stage of the trail, connecting the Long Lake Beach Trail Area to the City was completed in 2022. The trail is now 2 miles in length and includes a beautiful boardwalk.
On June 17, 2019 the Vergas Long Lake Trail was awarded a $290,000.00 grant for the boardwalk.
MN Boardwalks have been awarded the bid for the boardwalk portion of the trail.
