Cannon Valley Trail

The trail from Cannon to Welch is OK, but the trail from Red Wing to Welch is quite cracked and bumpy. Needs a complete overlay and it would be awesome.

Dakota Rail Regional Trail

Rode start to finish on our tandem. It is all asphalt, no gravel at all. Great burgers and fries at Longhorns in Lester Prairie. They let us fill our Camelback with ice and water before we left. Highly recommend!

Medicine Lake Regional Trail

Medicine Lake Trail

August, 2022 by allyn.dana

I give this 4 stars bc of the sections of the trail that are super bumpy due to tree root issues on the blacktopped surface. We loved the ride-hilly, winding, flat and forested with lots of canopy. Btw there is trail head parking at East Medicine Lake Park. That’s where we parked and there’s a nice bathroom and play area. Would recommend! Just wear your extra padded shorts for the bumpy sections!

Willard Munger State Trail (Gateway State Trail)

Mostly Level

August, 2022 by grimsbee5

For me a 68 year old who just had a total knee in Jan of 22 this was a nice level trail for me. I started where the trail joins another to Stillwater. I rode up to Pine Point Regional Park where the trail ends or begins I suppose if you start there. I kind of made it a round trip riding down Noble Ave to catch the trail to Stillwater just past Hwy 96. No easy way down to that trail as you have to walk bike down under the bridge and very steep embankment to the trail. It’s then pretty much down hill to Stillwater. Low grade hill though. 20 miles round trip. Not bad.

North Minnesota River Trail

Horrible Trail

August, 2022 by mleabattani

I wouldn't recommend this trail to anyone. It is probably the worst trail I have ridden. In terrible shape with lots of cracks and bumps, riding along the river is harrowing at best very steep hills with cracks and leans towards the rock covered embankment new to the river. Stay away from this trail.

Bruce Vento Regional Trail

Bumpy ride

August, 2022 by garyt3

We are able to access this trail right from our home in Maplewood. The trail is very bumpy from Maplewood all the way to Phalen. Perhaps the city is not maintaining it at this time because they want to turn it into a bus line with the trail running along side it. That would be a tragedy for all that use the trail and the homeowners that live along the trail.

Willard Munger State Trail (Gateway State Trail)

beautiful northern half

August, 2022 by mrjsgiese

Mostly great trail. The southern part leading to the city was a little rough and not marked very well. The northern part was great!
