The leaves were turning colors and the weather cool when I rode. Black top trail in good condition. It’s a combination of open areas and rides through tree lined sections. It would be a great ride year round for the property prepared.
There is one section not completed from Highway 108 through Maplewood State Park. It will be really nice when that is completed. Few sections where the terrain is difficult but for the most part very nice trail!
We rode the Fargo Trail last Sunday. The trail was easy to access from I 94, and there were clean bathrooms at the park at the south end of the trail.
Enjoyed the meandering ride by the river and loved the variety of bridges across the Red River joining Fargo with Moorhead, MN. The trail was paved and overall in pretty good shape.
All in all, a good day.
Started in Alexandria and headed west. Lake views and wildlife. Ran into crew repairing path with liquid rubber so had turn around. Well maintained and lots of scenery.
We had a great ride from Alexandria to Ashby. The trail was wide and went through beautiful country with lakes and farmland. There were some trail sections with cracks which were bothersome - but long stretches where we did not notice any cracks. Bring plenty of water as we only saw a couple of gas stations along the way (we did not go into towns). We will definitely ride on this trail again.
If you want a long walk, a nice bicycle ride or practice for hiking, this trail is a very good choice! There's lots of beautiful foliage, signs describing the local ecosystem and plenty of benches you can rest at.
Washboard surface due to vertical cracks and sealer. Planned to spend several days exploring, aborted .
My wife and I rode the trail from Garfield to Ashley on July 28 and Garfield to Osakis on July 29. Cut our rides short because of afternoon temps in the 90's Nice trail, wide, able to ride side by side with comfort. Certainly worth riding.
Not hard. Not easy. Construction near Evansville is complete. 56.2 miles from Fergus Falls to Osakis. Trail is in great shape; there's only minor rough areas. Lots of shade.
I biked this trail last year, easy, quiet and beautiful ride. I am going back this spring and bike the entire Central Lakes and Lake Wobegon trail over 2 days. Minnesota is blessed to have so many beautiful, safe and well-maintained paved trails. I am from ND and really we have no paved trails.
As others have noted, this trail has wonderful scenery of lakes, farm fields, hamlets, marsh, etc. and is very wide and flat. Some town trail heads lack a biff and most lack water. Most have shade & picnic tables or benches. Small towns have convenience stores and restaurants. There are some swimming spots along the way e.g. Alexandria. I stayed at a nice campground near Ashby which is right across from the trail.
However, this trail desperately needs some TLC. There are big cracks from side to side which have filled in with weeds growing up; you'll have a "clunkity-bump" every 20-30 feet on many parts of the trail. Somebody needs to spray Round-Up on the weeds, pull them out & then fill the cracks in again with asphalt.
Nice ride from Ashby to Dalton. Open views of rolling prairie, wetlands and farm fields. Head (right) to downtown Dalton and take the paved county road east for 2 miles, then south on a less traveled paved county road with rolling hills past several lakes and wetlands, a beautiful country church on top of a hill with an outstanding view of the countryside and to the trail for the return to Ashby. This is about a 17 mile loop and makes the ride more interesting than out and back on the trail.
