He rested his bobber on the Pequot Lakes water tower and would keep an eye on it as he kicked back and relaxed in his over-sized chair. His trail, the Paul Bunyan Trail, runs through the city of Pequot Lakes north to Bemidji and south to Brainerd. This community also is home to the Paul Bunyan Scenic Byway – a nationally recognized scenic byway with 50 miles of paved, wide-shouldered county roads, meandering around the Whitefish Chain of Lakes.
