Terry McGaughey: The Force Behind the Paul Bunyan Trail

Posted by Doug Shidell, July 24th, 2010

Terry McGaughey, the force behind development and support of the Paul Bunyan Trail near Brainerd, MN died recently at age 71. His first involvement with the trail began in 1983 and he is remembered for his tireless efforts to bring the trail to completion and expansion. He worked effectively with everyone from local city council members to representative Jim Oberstar in the US House of Representatives.

Although I never met Terry in person, it seemed as if I was always seeing his name or hearing about his efforts on behalf of the Paul Bunyan Trail. Have Fun Biking ran this story about him in a recent newsletter. The Paul Bunyan Trail is a featured trail in Bicycle Vacation Guide.
