ST. PAUL, Minn. — The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources is putting $3.3 million worth of mostly lakeshore property up for sale next week, including a parcel of land on Lake Superior’s North Shore where outdoors advocates had hoped a state bike trail would be built.

The public auction of school trust fund land marks the first time most of the parcels have been on the auction block. Sale of lakeshore land had been prohibited unless the sale was approved by the Legislature, but state lawmakers in 2012 opened the door for sales of school trust fund land along lakeshores to boost funding for schools.
