Wonderful scenery! Plenty of parking on the Wisconsin side with clean bathrooms.
Great trail to bike or walk!
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.
If you start from the Stillwater end, this is the perfect challenging ride. The grade is all uphill on the way to the Gateway. My husband pulled the two littles in the Burley, and I kept pace with our six year old. There is a park at the 3 mile point, which is great for a tired kiddo. Once you hit the Gateway, when everyone is tired, it’s really nice to have the return ride all downhill. The bluffs and ravines are beautiful. The sound of running water accompanies you through the first part of the ride, if you don’t have head phones. I am looking forward to doing it at least once more this year, with the fall leaves and the Burkey on my tail this time.
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
Really enjoy this trail, but it needs clear signage when in the area between the dog park and county road I.
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!
