Dairyland Trail

Good crushed rock trail

September, 2022 by mike461

This is my first crushed rock trail and used my gravel bike, keeping tires low (~30psi) for better traction. Riding on crushed rock is noisy compared to pavement with lots more vibration transmitted through the frame which tired my arms out. Only looser gravel in a very few spots. The landscape is mostly agricultural with the usual intermittent swamps, ponds and lakes typical of Minnesota. A few trees throw shade over the path but it is mostly open.

Started in the middle at Greenwald (ample parking) proceeding northwest toward Meire Grove but the trail ended after 5 miles so I returned. Lightly travelled local roads will take you into town. Next it was SW to Elrosa. Trail had a bit more loose gravel with a couple of gopher holes but still fine. Both Greenwald and Elrosa (more ample parking) have benches to take a break but there are no services (bathrooms or water) on the trail so only gets 4 stars.

Lake Koronis Recreational Trail

It is ruined

July, 2022 by andybinsfeld

This was a GREAT trail. As of 7/29/22 it now has a new gravely surface and is almost unusable for bicycles. Why did this happen?

Glacial Lakes State Trail

Between New London and just south of Spicer

July, 2022 by janewoodenhorse

By far, the most beautiful. Very wooded, lots of wildflowers and views of lakes. The trail, however is very bumpy and in need of repair. The cracks are deep and jarring and difficult on my back, neck and teeth¿. The views were outstanding, though.

Glacial Lakes State Trail

Between Hawick and New London

July, 2022 by janewoodenhorse

Nice Trail. Flat, through farmland. Bumpy towards New London. Follows Hwy 23, so can be a bit noisy. Nice trail!

Glacial Lakes State Trail

Between Richmond and Roscoe

July, 2022 by janewoodenhorse

Very nice trail, wooded and open. Can be windy which makes for a harder ride, but one of our favorite trails. Would be nice to have a bench in Roscoe for a rest before turning around. Bathrooms in Richmond and you can also rent bikes there. You can also ride from Richmond to Cold Spring and stop at the Sauk River falls.

Lake Koronis Recreational Trail

great workout loop

July, 2022 by tepfers4

A couple of areas will really get your heart rate up, but also some easy going stretches. It’s a perfect weekend workout. Bathrooms, water, and parking available at 2 points on the loop, the regional county park and veterans park. There are also beaches at each park to wade in and cool off.

Luce Line Trail

Very scenic and fun trail! Not too crowded. Rode from Downtown Minneapolis. Be sure to look for the small sign right off the trail near Plymouth, MN for Trailhead Bike Shop and Luce Line Brewery!

Lake Koronis Recreational Trail

This loop has lots of shade with a couple of good hills. Very relaxing and enjoyable I look forward to riding it again.

Luce Line Trail

Hutchinson to Silver Lake

July, 2021 by adsaxs

We road out-and-back from the Masonic West Riverside Park campground in Hutchinson to Silver Lake which is approximately 20 miles round trip. The trail is fully paved in this section . It is a combination of shade and full sun as the trail meanders through cornfields.

The trail could use a little maintenance in certain sections. There were tree roots and wide cracks across the path but overall the trail in this segment was pretty good. It felt like a slight uphill grade to Silver Lake so we enjoyed a bit of a downhill back into Hutchinson. A few benches along the way but no other amenities except for Hutchinson.

Hutchinson has a number of parks along the trail with benches and sculptures which are very nice. I would recommend this trail.

Luce Line Trail

gravel road mostly

July, 2021 by vjskh4xbxn

Mostly gravel. Good ride. Road bikes watch out , if they are not made for gravel. Overall good, did 100 miles round trip from Schaper Park. Next time I will start at mile 0 of Luce Line State trail
