Luce Line Trail

Thompson Lake (Cosmos) to Silver Lake

September, 2023 by bethanyrust

I covered the Thompson Lake to Oddfellows Park in Hutch at the end of July on a bike. There is plenty of parking and shade at Cosmos County Park and a bathroom with running water. The trail starts as Cadillac gravel through trees and then pops out to a gravel parking lot next to grain bins and a business. At the 4 way stop, it’s an easy crossing of highway 7 and a Casey’s to load up on snacks and water. It isn’t well marked to pick the trail back up, make a left at Gemini Ave and you find the sign for the trail. This is where the fun begins in my opinion. It starts gravel, but turns to grass. At the time I rode, the grass had not been mowed, but was 100% rideable. Your mileage may vary depending on bike and fitness level. The grass section is about 8 miles and incredibly beautiful to be riding through sloughs and catching a glimpse of what this prairie once was. The trail turns back to gravel after Cedar Mills, then eventually pavement near Hutch. An easy access gas station with bathrooms and water refill and snacks is next to Oddfellows Park. Though the parks in this section have restrooms as well.

Continuing on the trail, you arrive in a campground that accommodates both RVs and tents next to the Crow Wing River. Plenty of shade, a beautiful view of the river, and each spot has a fire ring and a picnic table. You will get traffic noise, but the location and amenities are worth it. The city of Hutchinson has done an impressive job incorporating this trail as a city resource. I saw lots of walkers, runners, and young kids on bikes using the trail to navigate the area.

Continuing on to Silver Lake, the trail surface is paved, but gets a little more rough. There are areas where some of the cracks are large enough to grab a narrow tire, so mind the gap. The scenery on this September ride was beautiful. I made the side trip to the Crow Wing Winery, just to check out the gravel trail. This is also a worthy stop for yummy food and a glass of wine, with both indoor and outdoor seating. The trail to Silver Lake remains about the same with lots of sumac and trees to shade the trail.

I absolutely think this would make a wonderful and pretty easy bikepacking trip.

Great Northern Trail

Twice we've taken this trail for a Sunday outing from Woodland Park in Elk River to Zimmerman, enjoying a light lunch @ D's Smokehouse & then back. Can't wait for the continued expansion north.

Luce Line Trail

The trail is a really nice trail to ride, nice scenery when you ride. However, once you get past Cedar Mills heading West towards Cosmos. That's when it changes grass is thick and makes hard to ride.

Bryant Lake Regional Park Trail

Loops from Bryant Lake to Lone Lake Parks

August, 2023 by jarad.jackson

This is not a destination trail, but does loop between the two parks and go under highway 62. It’s mostly gravel north of 62 and paved south of it and the part in Lone Lake park is very hilly. It also goes past the Lone Lake mountain bike loops if you’re looking for more adventure.

Rice Creek West Regional Trail

Nice, not crowded

August, 2023 by schaecherj

Bike the trail and especially liked the area between Central and University. Almost like a state forest!

Minnesota Valley State Trail

Horse trail or dirt bike maybe?

August, 2023 by plyman38

I attempted this trail for the first time last week. I agree with one of the reviews where the beginning point in Belle Plaine is tough to find. The parking lot is may be enough for three or four cars gets washed out dirt all rutted. After unloading my bike, I went to what appeared to be the entrance completely overgrown with weeds. My E bike gives me 40 miles to a battery. I tried going through just a mile and coming back, a total of 2 miles, it used up 25% of my battery due to so much mud. It would be perfect for a gas dirtbike. Not worth a trip.

Cannon Valley Trail

Great Trail!!!

August, 2023 by plyman38

My first time on the trail was on 8/13. As soon as I got into the trees, I was met by two turkeys on the trail then a few miles further on, two deer ran across the trail, smooth going all the way. About halfway through the trail, I saw people on inner tubes floating down the river, having a great time. Made it all the way to the end and a mile towards Redwing. On the way back I jumped 6 more deer. A gorgeous trail that’s well-kept. Nice bathrooms and rest areas. I live in Brooklyn Park and it was well worth the drive. I’ll do it again, especially in the fall.

Nine Mile Creek Regional Trail

beautiful trail

August, 2023 by fayeanhorn

So far we have only ridden the west from approximately HWY 100 to Hopkins. It has beautiful scenery with woods and marshland. The boardwalks are fun especially now that we have e-bikes with shock absorbers. For a metro trail you can go quite a ways without having to cross a street.

Bruce Vento Regional Trail

Road today

August, 2023 by raanders1

Bumpy ride in Maplewood. St. Paul section was nice, well marked, beware of the hills by the bird sanctuary.

Rice Creek North Regional Trail

good not great trail

August, 2023 by hayleykulstad

The beginning of the trail in Shoreview is nice but then you have to go in streets for quite a while and then it actually cuts off for a block or so. The trail is closed on the north end too. Trail is smooth at times but mostly bumpy.

Great Northern Trail

newly paved!

August, 2023 by ellencstoehr

I just went for my first road bike experience yesterday on this trail, driving to zimmerman to hop on it. To my luck, I came to find it was newly paved! It’s a lovely route to elk River and I actually think it may be closer to 8 or 9 miles one way, according to mile markers. The only down side is the stretch of land east to the elk River landfill…depending on which way the wind is blowing, it can be stinky. I can’t wait to bike again!

St. Croix River Crossing Loop Trail

Fun ride - big climb

July, 2023 by jarad.jackson

This is a really fun trail to ride as it goes along the river much of the time and also behind downtown Stillwater. A bike trail is the perfect use for the old lift bridge and it’s an enjoyable crossing. It is a very long hill to ride up to Houlton, WI. The Wisconsin portion has a rest stop along the bike trail and the new bridge is downhill and a very fast decent back to Minnesota.
