Northern Cass Pass

A route that once carried trains on the Casselton-Mayville Railroad now provides a place for leisurely biking and walking between the small Red River Valley towns of Hunter and Arthur. For 6 miles, the asphalt Northern Cass Pass provides a straight and flat recreational route through the prairie land north of Interstate 94. The rail-trail was once on the line of the Great Northern Pacific Railroad, later the Burlington Northern. In 2012, the railroad rails and ties were removed, and the communities of Hunter and Arthur worked to repair the railroad bridges, plant native trees, and compact the trail’s surface. A ride or a walk along the Northern Cass Pass makes a great day trip from Fargo, the state’s largest city, located about a half-hour to the southeast.
