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
Well maintained great canopy . Good ride
Minnesota boat launch and Cedar trailhead is at the other side of trail as well.
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.
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
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
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.
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.
We rode from Welch to Cannon Falls, along the river, under the tree canopy. Meticulously maintained. A beauty.
