Cannon Valley Trail

Needs a complete overlay and it would be great.

Needs a complete overlay and it would be great.

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.

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.

Goodhue Pioneer State Trail

Good ride with a big push

August, 2022 by sangkungate

this trail is really great too ride on to see overgrown weeds and horses. there is not much for greenery unlike Canyon Valley Trail. there is a nice bar at the end and it completed my 26. 4 mile ride on my bike

Cannon Valley Trail

Easy-going fun trail

August, 2022 by sangkungate

I like the green around sections of the trail with Long distance riding, this trail really helps me complete a 26. 4 mile ride down here and then goodhue County pioneer trail. it is such a good thing that there was an easy TrailLink and this one was my favorite part because of the soft downhill cruise with little uphill

Blazing Star State Trail

great trail

July, 2022 by javierheilda

What a great trail. We loved it. Ride it in July 2022. Temps were great and lake and trees make this trail amazing. It’s a must if your in the area. We from Texas and was in town for work and couldn’t miss the opportunity to ride this trail.

Vermillion River Regional Greenway

However, we added an extra 5 miles due to lack of signage. We really enjoyed the ride along the river and levee. We will definately be back in the fall.

We loved this trail! We love the loop as opposed as coming back the same way. HOWEVER, we did have to use the map to stay on the trail as there is inadequate signage. We plan on going back in the fall when the leaves change.

Cannon Valley Trail

A wonderful ride

We rode from Welch to Cannon Falls, along the river, under the tree canopy. Meticulously maintained. A beauty.
