Minnesota Valley State Trail

Extended to Carver

January, 2017 by tim.bee

You can now ride this trail from SW Bloomington out to Carver. A short section between Chaska & Carver has new, smooth pavement. Just follow the Chaska dike trail, when you get west near the ball park you go on a street for a short ways & then the trail is there--maybe they'll put up signs someday? Carver is a cute little town. There is a Casey's near the trailhead.

Once you get in to Carver you can take the trail a little farther, then a road for a mile & then you can pick up on another trail & go up some steep hills & loop back to Carver or Chaska.

Dakota Rail Regional Trail

Great News!

January, 2017 by bobbyc601

The trail should be paved to County 1 to the West edge of Lester Prairie sometime this early summer!

Bruce Vento Trail

Great Tail will DIE

December, 2016 by bucew

The Bruce Veto trail is always a wonderful ride, but once the EXPRESS BUS LINE (from WBL to downtown St. Paul) is built on the trail it will die. Who wants to ride next to huge stinking diesel busses? Not Me! Don't build on our trail.

Sunrise Prairie Trail

1/4 star is more accurate

December, 2016 by 500milesormore

This is not a road bike trail. It's horrid. It will ruin your bike, not to mention your body. It was supposed to get resurfaced... never did. Go elsewhere

Connects the lakes and river trails

Helps turn a recreational system into a true transportation system.

Dakota Rail Regional Trail

Awesome Dakota Rail Trail

September, 2016 by vsnyc

I live in NYC and recently spent time visiting family in Lester Prairie. I rode the Dakota rail trail from end to end several times while I was home and cannot say enough wonderful things about it. Gorgeous views, had the trail to myself for the most part, every amenity you would want -- maps, mileage and historical info at the kiosks, porta-potties, water, even a bike repair station in Mound!!! The segment from Waconia to Lester Prairie is especially beautiful with endless views of farm country, gently rolling hills and corn and soybean fields, and beautiful wetlands and lakes right alongside the trail.

The most blissful biking experience I've had. I will be back for more!!!

Dinkytown Greenway

Good for commute or just for fun

September, 2016 by erschenk

The trail continues under 35w bridge where you can take a right on 13th then a quick left to get on the trail that follows the Mississippi, you can keep following this up the river, or take it over the stone arch bridge. Not much for dedicated trails after you cross over stone arch into marcy Holmes/dinktown area tho.

Nice Westbank/dt connection from East bank or St. Anthony Park and uofm stp campus

Luce Line Trail

Love this trail

September, 2016 by casey briskin

This is one of my favorite trails in the city. Park at the parking lot at Stubbs Bay and bike 10 miles to Watertown. Mario's is a great cafe stop before turning back. The trail is not crowded and offers beautiful views of farms, small lakes and woodlands. Some day I want to ride west of Watertown and see what Winston is like.

Hudson to Lakeland/Afton Trail

dangerous

September, 2016 by djzimmer

narrow concrete sidewalk on the Hudson side of the river, narrow lane over the river, lots of blind spots

Afton to Lakeland Trail

rough and tumble

September, 2016 by djzimmer

This road needs to be resurfaced and redesigned. Once the round abouts were installed, the trail got very a zigzag line.

Big Rivers Regional Trail

Short but sweet

September, 2016 by awildererica

A good chunk of the trail along the river is bordered by limestone cliffs on the south and a black chain link fence on the north river side. Previous fallen rock near the trail makes for interesting thoughts. Biffy at trail beginning and end. Rides past two restaurants midway of Lucky 13 and Axel's. Easy trail without many inclinestudents of much degree.

Sakatah Singing Hills State Trail

Overall day cent ride. but...

September, 2016 by johntwerp

I rode this trail for the first time today from Faribault to Mankato. The surface of the trail was great until Waterville. Then things got kind of ugly. I was on my 29" mountain bike with the front suspension locked out and it was pretty rough for 10 miles or so West of Waterville. I have to imagine it would be pretty bad on a road bike. Trail conditions aside, it is a flat ride with some okay scenery. Nothing too exciting but for southern MN it's not bad. I'll do it again at some point.
