Buffalo River State Trail

Pam

July, 2019 by pkriebe

Unfortunately this trail is way too sandy. Having biked from Eleva to Osseo, this part of the trail, so I make the assumption of the rest is not for bike riding. It is however a beautiful trail, just not an enjoyable bike riding experience, more like a trudging through sand, it seems to be used by ATVs, which for them is a great trail !

Chippewa River State Trail

Another Great Wisconsin Trail

June, 2019 by heochief

This is a great trail experience, A paved trail that hugs the Chippewa River for most of the trail. When not hugging the river it travels through a tunnel of tress and some open fields. We found most of the trail was shaded. Many scenic views of the river and the tree covered areas are just as scenic. Wonderful trail and we will return in fall.

Gandy Dancer Trail - Southern Section

Nice trail, but a bit dull.

June, 2019 by mbollom

I did the ten mile from Danbury to Webster. The trail surface (pressed dirt and gravel) was fine for my touring bike tires, but would not work for thinner road bike tires. Like all rails-to-trails routes, the grade was very gradual, passing through a mixture of deciduous and pine forests. There were also a few larger lakes off to the side of the trail. But overall, this very straight trail was just a bit dull. The better part of the ride was returning to Danbury from Webster along Country Roads FF and F. These roads were well paved and had almost no traffic. The also afforded better views of the north woods country side.

Duncan Creek Trail

Nice Loop Trail

June, 2019 by adventureskating.com

Pretty fun little loop. There are some great views of the Chippewa River and some woods on the northeastern part of the loop. Also some interesting things to see in Chippewa Falls on the western part. Pavement is a bit rough at times and some sections aren't super well marked, but still a fun place to skate or bike.

Gateway State Trail

Diverse trail!

June, 2019 by djwolter

Starting in a bad part of St. Paul, this trail meanders through suburbs and natural area all the way to rural Stillwater (with a new connection to downtown Stillwater). I parked off of Arlington Ave and did a nice 40.2 mile ride round trip.

Brown's Creek State Trail

Great connection!

June, 2019 by djwolter

This trail connects the longer Gateway State Trail with downtown Stillwater. It’s a nice trail with some scenic views. Keep in mind it’s gradually going downhill into Stillwater, so your return will be uphill!

Mississippi River Regional Trail (Dakota County)

From industrial to pristine

June, 2019 by djwolter

This is a well-maintained trail that takes you from South St. Paul, along the Mississippi River Levy all the way south to the Inver Grove Heights/Rosemount refinery area. There are some hills and a variety of landscape. The southern portion goes through the Pine Bluffs nature preserve and then ends, where the trail will eventually connect all the way to Hastings. It’s a diverse ride that is enjoyable.

Cannon Valley Trail

One of the best!

June, 2019 by djwolter

For a number of years, this has been one of my favorite trails in Minnesota. It's a good distance round trip, is high amenity, has interesting things to do on each end, and gives you a wonderful view of nature. It's also well maintained and nice to have paved trails. Highly recommend!

Old Abe State Trail

Experienced the 19.7 part of the trail

May, 2019 by danalcrawford

Rode this rail on a very windy day. It was scenic and had some good places to stop and eat our packed lunch. Early part of the trail offers some shade but the latter half is pretty uncovered and has no wind breaks. It was wonderfully paved and ran along some great views of the river. We also got to see the only existing log piler.

Chippewa River State Trail

Beautiful scenic route

May, 2019 by danalcrawford

First part of the trail is paved then suddenly it is gravel-like but they used crushed river rock held together with what appeared to be an asphalt mix.
An enjoyable ride and very historic. Many bumps (it is early spring) and lots of after rain tree debris. Still, really no issues.
We ended our ride with an evening spent in downtown Eau Claire. The city of bridges.... Stayed at the Eau Claire Best Western Plus, which was right off the interstate and wonderful. 1/2 mile from the trail!

Brown's Creek State Trail

Safe route from St. Paul to Stillwater

January, 2019 by tomster627

Rode this once last year and it’s very pretty. Easy connection from Saint Paul to Stillwater via the Gateway State. If you’re up in the area it’s definitely something to explore.

Gateway State Trail

Beautiful experience

January, 2019 by tomster627

The Gateway State is something everyone should experience. Heading east past 35E there’s a ton of scenery to soak in and trail to cover. Easy to access and easy to lose track of time exploring up to Stillwater and back. Easily my favorite trail to ride.
