Wonderful scenery! Plenty of parking on the Wisconsin side with clean bathrooms.
Great trail to bike or walk!
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
Well maintained great canopy . Good ride
Really enjoy this trail, but it needs clear signage when in the area between the dog park and county road I.
I have to confess I didn't do much research ahead of time for trail conditions and usage. So I was a bit surprised when I discovered it was a atv/utv trail. I started in Fairchild and everything looked promising. A nice firm trail surface, little to no traffic, beautiful landscape...until I hit the quick sand. Well, that's what it felt like on my gravel bike. Maybe 5 miles into my ride the trail went from nice hard packed to loose sand where I could not pedal. I bailed onto the adjacent paved road and considered quitting for the day. However the road I jumped onto paralleled the trail so I decided to explore a little. This worked out very well as I continued West on the paved country road until I hit a trail crossing where I was happy to discover the trail was back to a firm surface. I stayed on the trail all the way to Strum (20 miles?) where I turned back and started making stops at the local food and drink establishments I had passed along the way.
Overall the trail was mostly firm and great for my gravel bike. A couple sections in the open heat were dry and loose but rideable. I noticed many a paved country road that paralleled the trail so there were options out. The motorized users I encountered were all very polite and slowed down when passing.
Some of my Favorite stops included: Northwoods Brewpub in Osseo, the Tin Tiki at Trails End near Price and Blooms Country Inn in Price.
3 Stars for excellent conditions at times. A unique adventure on a well maintained surface. One local told me they grade and care fore trail system quite regularly so you don't see giant mud holes or bumpy washboard sections. And I can verify that.
Minnesota boat launch and Cedar trailhead is at the other side of trail as well.
For me a 68 year old who just had a total knee in Jan of 22 this was a nice level trail for me. I started where the trail joins another to Stillwater. I rode up to Pine Point Regional Park where the trail ends or begins I suppose if you start there. I kind of made it a round trip riding down Noble Ave to catch the trail to Stillwater just past Hwy 96. No easy way down to that trail as you have to walk bike down under the bridge and very steep embankment to the trail. It’s then pretty much down hill to Stillwater. Low grade hill though. 20 miles round trip. Not bad.
