Sleepy Eye Lake Bike Trail

It's a nice, well-maintained trail that goes around the lake.

Chaska Ravine Trail

It has its moments

April, 2024 by rmtrsws6g4

This could be a really nice trail. I was trying to connect from the Minnesota Valley Trail to the Lake Minnetonka Trail and thought this would be a nicer ride than taking Jonathan Carver Parkway. Unfortunately, signage is non-existent along this trail and it splits at multiple places so staying on the trail requires a lot of stopping and checking your map. On the positive side, it has a lot of potential and the gravel sections were fun.

Minnesota River Bluffs LRT Regional Trail

Fun gravel ride

October, 2023 by rmtrsws6g4

This has been on my to-do list for a while. Finally did it out-back from Hopkins and it didn’t disappoint. Great views and interesting scenery. The signage could be better around highway 62 and in Chaska, but it’s pretty good elsewhere. Looking forward to riding it again next year!

Sakatah Singing Hills State Trail

Scenic. Gradual elevation change. Smooth.

October, 2023 by l_kunz

Context: Rode trail end to end both directions on a m road bike w 700 X 23m tires. Past reviews seem accurate wrt beauty of surrounding landscape. Disregard older reviews re poor pavement conditions. The pavement is smooth end to end. An occasional weather crack (closer to Faribault) is typically marked. Would ride again on same bike any day.

Minnesota Valley State Trail

Horse trail or dirt bike maybe?

August, 2023 by plyman38

I attempted this trail for the first time last week. I agree with one of the reviews where the beginning point in Belle Plaine is tough to find. The parking lot is may be enough for three or four cars gets washed out dirt all rutted. After unloading my bike, I went to what appeared to be the entrance completely overgrown with weeds. My E bike gives me 40 miles to a battery. I tried going through just a mile and coming back, a total of 2 miles, it used up 25% of my battery due to so much mud. It would be perfect for a gas dirtbike. Not worth a trip.

North Minnesota River Trail

A connection to better trails

July, 2023 by timbee205_tl

As the last reviewer said "it's a horrible trail". Lots of bumps, ruts, cracks, etc. The main trailhead in the downtown area is very nice, you do go thru a nice park eventually and it connects to a couple of other trails. Probably better to start at the other trails or parks in the first place. Until this trail gets re-paved, better to avoid it.

Minnesota Valley State Trail

My husband and I rode our ebikes from Shakopee to Carver. Majority of the ride was under tree canopy with nice views of the MN river. We are just getting into riding, the trail level was appropriate for us. Enjoy!

Sakatah Singing Hills State Trail

Worth a trip

July, 2023 by klarson5

My wife and I have been riding trails from Florida to Minnesota over the last 2 months. This trail has been one of the best so far! Its wide, paved, shaded, and generally very smooth. What a gem!

Dakota Rail Regional Trail

Nice way to take in Lake Minnetonka

July, 2023 by trob4cy

Nice surface and well maintained trail. Stop by the Minnetonka drive in while in Mound.

Dakota Rail Regional Trail

Very Beautiful!

December, 2022 by jenniferrajamn

Walked in the Mound part of the trail!

Dakota Rail Regional Trail

Rode start to finish on our tandem. It is all asphalt, no gravel at all. Great burgers and fries at Longhorns in Lester Prairie. They let us fill our Camelback with ice and water before we left. Highly recommend!

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.
