Very nice path, bridges through wetlands. Lots of wildflowers. Leads to a nice beach and great playground.
Needs a complete overlay and it would be great.
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.
Great trail but needs repair, mowing needs to be done more to keep weeds off trail , northern end better maintained Rochester to rail bridge need work
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!
Minnesota boat launch and Cedar trailhead is at the other side of trail as well.
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!
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.
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.
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.
Mostly great trail. The southern part leading to the city was a little rough and not marked very well. The northern part was great!
