Minnehaha Trail

Many unleashed dogs but beautiful scenery

October, 2019 by jennifer.bendtsen

As others have stated, the trail is definitely neglected and very rough in some places but the scenery is beautiful. The most negative thing about the trail is that NO ONE has their dogs leashed. I passed SIX unleashed dogs. On a bike, it's not easy to get out of the way of a dog that may dart out- dangerous for me and the dog. Very disappointed in the dog owners sharing the trail.

Luce Line Trail

October, 2019 by tonywlazlo

Luce line is now paved from Cty Rd 1 in Winstead along the airport runway and reconnects to the existing trail.

Grand Rounds Scenic Byway

Lake Hiawatha to Minnehaha Falls

September, 2019 by lane.rapp

This stretch is difficult for commuting due to competition with auto traffic on narrow stretches of the Parkway. I use inline skates and can’t simply clog a lane for miles. It’s surprisingly stark how little maintenance attention to non-motorized traffic this stretch has received. After crossing the Hiawatha bridge the paths are more recent. Separation from traffic improves, but pedestrian paths are a tangled.

Minnesota River Bluffs LRT Regional Trail

Avoid this trail!

September, 2019 by wendylee

I'm giving this trail a one-star rating for it's current stage of chaos. Avoid it if you can. This is an otherwise great trail; however, the southwest light rail project makes it next to impossible to enjoy. I would avoid this trail until the project is done AND until the western end of the trail is repaired, which has been in disrepair for years!

Elm Creek Park Reserve Trails

wonderful

August, 2019 by anne.ahrens

Great paved trails with rolling hills that present a good workout but are very doable. We spent a day here with our kids and they loved biking the trials.

Mill Towns State Trail

Great Trail With Beautiful Waterfalls at Lake Byllesby

August, 2019 by twdfish

Biked the Cannon Valley Trail and before going to the Cannon Falls trailhead, took the Mill Towns Trail to see what it was like. First part of trail is old and rough, and then you have to go on a dirt trail through a park and up a hill in class 5 rock before you get to the smooth, great trail by the fairgrounds. Wonderful ride that takes you past the beautiful waterfalls and dam at Lake Byllesby. Before the dam, if you go left, it's the Goodhue County park section of Lake Byllesby and the trail ends there. If you keep to the right, you cross the bridge and the dam and waterfalls from Lake Byllsbye are beautiful. Past the bridge you enter the Dakota County park section of the lake, and if you follow the path past the RV camping section, you get to the beach. Terrific beach with really nice bathrooms. Great trail - so glad we ventured off to bike it.

Swedish Immigrant Trail

Amazing trail

August, 2019 by gla535xi

Trail is very well designed and maintained. Can’t wait until it is completed.

Cannon Valley Trail

Used to be a great trail!

August, 2019 by breebertz

I've always loved this trail. I don't mind dropping $5 for a wheel pass if it's going straight into maintenance on the trail. Unfortunately, this trail is now in a pretty bad state of disrepair. There are great stretches, but there are sadly several terrible stretches. Most notably about three quarters of the way to Red Wing from Cannon Falls. One rut almost bounced me off my road bike. Please start spending some of that cash you collect!

Mill Towns State Trail

Not great for inline skating

August, 2019 by rasmisek1

This trail is not smooth... there are rocks, sticks, grass growing and the sticky black tar all in/on the trail! And you have to cross the railway which is not easy with skates! If you want to ride a bike I’m sure it would be no problem or if you really want a challenge while skating go for it, but I won’t be skating this trail again.. oh and it’s poorly marked so I had to turn around a couple times before I found the right direction

Harriet Island Regional Park Trail

Running with a view

July, 2019 by emartiinez

It’s a nice escape from the city, but with the view of it. I like that there are restrooms, water fountains and bathrooms. There is also a playground in the middle of the trail, if you’re a parent this is a good place to workout and have fun with your kids as well!

Gandy Dancer Trail - Southern Section

Nice trail, but a bit dull.

June, 2019 by mbollom

I did the ten mile from Danbury to Webster. The trail surface (pressed dirt and gravel) was fine for my touring bike tires, but would not work for thinner road bike tires. Like all rails-to-trails routes, the grade was very gradual, passing through a mixture of deciduous and pine forests. There were also a few larger lakes off to the side of the trail. But overall, this very straight trail was just a bit dull. The better part of the ride was returning to Danbury from Webster along Country Roads FF and F. These roads were well paved and had almost no traffic. The also afforded better views of the north woods country side.

Luce Line Trail

Resurfacing West of Winstead

June, 2019 by marketblandings

6-25-2019 trail west of Winstead getting thick, heavy asphalt resurfacing. Can't get past the heavy machinery just outside of town.
