Mississippi River Regional Trail (Dakota County)

wowzer

July, 2024 by angeladreis_tl

This trail was very great! Your ride along the bison Prairie very private very smooth and just stunning

Vermillion River Regional Greenway

A good day

July, 2024 by 8xshdh9bmw

The trail is smooth, with a few challenging inclines. We stopped at the bridge, downtown for lunch at the Confluence hotel. They have a couple yard games out front, and seating for taking in the view. Part of the trail, near the Vermillion entrance is being paved. We’ll go back to complete the loop. .

Stower Seven Lakes State Trail

Well worth the trip!

July, 2024 by larrydabeerman

This is a very well-maintained trail! The trail is crushed limestone and is suitable for all kinds of bikes, skinny road tires may have an issue with one section for about 1/8 of a mile where the trail gets a little rough. The locals are super friendly! The only con is the horsefly that seemed to trail us the whole way We will definitely go back.¿

Cannon Valley Trail

beautiful trail

July, 2024 by c-armen

We rode from Welch into cannon falls. Took about an hour and stopped at the winery for some flatbread and wine then rode back. Great day. We were able to ride side by side most of the way and the trail was smooth and mostly flat and mostly shaded.

Cannon Valley Trail

Rode this trail from Red Wing to Cannon Falls last year and loved it. Tried the same today and only made it 3 miles. Tree on path and flooded in areas.

Old Abe State Trail

Jim Falls to Cornell to Brunet Island State Park and back

June, 2024 by djmmsherman

We listened to previous reviews and picked "the cream of the crop" for our ride -- heading north out of Jim Falls to Cornell. Beautiful ride along the river and plenty of tree canopy. Trail in great shape. At Cornell, we decided to bike into Brunet State Park for a nice ride around the small island. We got back to Jim Falls and kept going, for a daily ride of about 33 miles. Highly recommend a tour of the Leinenkugel Brewery in Chippewa Falls, overnight lodging at the amazing Otter Creek Inn in Altoona, and dinner at Mona Lisa in Eau Claire -- the pizza and pasta were outstanding, and a great dinner after a great ride!

Chippewa River State Trail

Segment from Durand trailhead to Red Cedar Trail

June, 2024 by djmmsherman

We rode this trail in late May 2024 and listened to the reviews, so I can only comment on the western part of this trail, from the Durand trailhead, riding about 6.5 miles to the intersection with the Red Cedar Trail and then we headed north on that trail. Other reviews say past the intersection, the trail needs work, so we followed that advice. The trail out of Durand is great -- paved and beautiful biking with tree canopy and the point where the trail intersects with the Red Cedar is clearly marked. The portion we did was great.

Cannon Valley Trail

Well Worth The Trip/Price!

May, 2024 by gristow

This user fee supported trail could offer a clinic for trail maintenance given its pristine condition. Excellent paved surface with the exception of the first 4 miles west of Red Wing (given the exposure to the sun). Trail was well-marked with numerous rest stops and some informative signage and trail-side attractions. Several new bridges added to overall enjoyment of the trail. Mostly shaded for 10 miles east of Cannon Falls (beautiful falls running thru the city!). Maintenance was superb and passed several maintenance vehicles (removing a large tree limb blown down from the previous night’s storm and a blower clearing the trail.) One of the prettiest well-maintained trails we have been on and we have been on many!

Red Cedar State Trail

Beautiful trail

May, 2024 by bcurley_tl

Perfect for hybrid bikes! Runs along the Red Cedar River for most of the trail and enjoyable to see the kayaks and canoes. Very lightly used.

Cannon Valley Trail

wish I lived closer

May, 2024 by linda.gruetzmacher5

I finally made it to the Cannon Valley Trail, I live 3 hours away. It was beautiful with the river , tree canopy and hills. interesting and multiple rest stops. Some parts aren’t the smoothest but overall it’s in decent shape. I was happy to pay $7 to support its upkeep. What a deal for a good outdoor experience. I rode from the Cannon Falls end to Red Wing and back. Enjoyed the Red Wing waterfront parks/ trail. Found the bike on-ramp for the bridge over the Mississippi. Found an excellent CannonBelles Ice Cream / sandwich shop at the end.
