Luce Line Trail

Great trail

July, 2020 by ashu1642

One of my favorite trails.We have biked here multiple times and most part of the trail is flat which makes it easy to go with kids too.

Luce Line Trail

Nice ride to Silver Lake once we found the trail on west side of Winsted

July, 2020 by gladbrook33

July 2020 - Found the beginning of the trail off of 6th St. or Babcock Ave. near the Farmer's Coop. There is a very small grassy area to park near the Coop. We stopped to ask. Last section of the trail is now paved by the airport runway, which is currently getting paved itself. Enjoyed the ride from Winsted to Silver Lake. Appoximately 18 miles round trip. Biked through shaded areas and sunny areas in between farm fields.

Dakota Rail Regional Trail

NIce ride from Lester Prairie to Bonifacius

July, 2020 by gladbrook33

July 2020 -Enjoyed the nicely paved trail in good condition. Nice scenery. A mix of canopies of trees and shade and sunny areas through farm fields. Lovely views of Lake Waconia. Approximately 24 miles round trip. Camped at nearby Baylor Regional Park . Possible to bike the 6 miles to New Germany to access the trail on wide shoulders of County Road 33.

Minnesota Valley State Trail

Mostly shaded Huber Park to Chaska but..

July, 2020 by coljen

We hit about 30 yards or so just east of Chaska where the path was under water so probably not a great trail after heavy rains or springtime. Would also not be comfortable alone as a female as it’s very secluded and swampy around the trail. The ride was pretty easy and I would try it again with my husband going further past Chaska. Easy parking and nice start at Huber Park.

Red Jacket Trail

great ride for a windy day

June, 2020 by thegurrs

I was hesitant to ride today because of all the wind but this trail is so wooded it was perfect. It’s in decent shape but is beginning to show its age with quite a few cracks. The views were great following a river for quite a few miles and a few nice bridges to cross. I would recommend this nice trail for a lovely outing in Mankato.

Sakatah Singing Hills State Trail

I have driven this trail several times and it has always been very clean and well kept. The trail is mostly flat and offers great scenery with neat places to stop at in the little towns you travel through between Fairbault and Mankato.

lovely trail

May, 2020 by thegurrs

A lovely trail around the lake.

South Route Trail

killer hill

May, 2020 by thegurrs

We parked at Minneopa and did half the trail for a total of 6.3 miles round trip. You start by going uphill out of Minneopa which was really pretty, do a few smaller hills then there’s a killer hill shortly before Mt Kato. I did have to walk but my 20-year-old son conquered it. The prettiest part is in Minneopa and the rest parallels a road. The trail is in great shape though without any cracks.

Sakatah Singing Hills State Trail

Terrible trail conditions

May, 2020 by katiejronning

My husband and I inline skate and we started in Morristown toward Mankato. The trail to Waterville was nice, but completely covered in sticks and leaves, making it very difficult to get through. It was slow going and pretty treacherous for blading. The scenery was beautiful, but we could hardly look at it because we were too busy avoiding sticks. The trail from Waterville to eagle lake (according to a sign) is hardly a trail. The asphalt is so rough we had to turn around after maybe 0.25 miles. The only part that was decent was from Morristown to Fairbault, but it still had a ton of debris. Overall, Waterville to Fairbault could be great because the trail was very smooth, but it was not well maintained. Don't even bother going past Waterville, unless you've got a mountain bike.

Minnesota Valley State Trail

Very muddy

April, 2020 by heathertamistewart

The flooding from the past few years has definitely affected the enjoyment and access to this trail. We went in two different directions today. The paved portion was ‘okay’ but still slick with mud in spots and overrun with water in others. The non paved section was a cross country adventure. We finally gave up after a few miles of sand and mud. I think it will be hard for this trail to be consistently maintained given its proximity to the river.

Minnesota Valley State Trail

mud mud mud

April, 2020 by kristinal.bushman

I don’t know if the whole Trail is bad, but the start of it by valleyfair was touch and go of mud and we couldn’t continue biking very far at all.

Dakota Rail Regional Trail

The paved trail now goes into Lester Prairie and you can ride a mile or so in town on low traffic city streets. Also there are some nice rest stop areas and stores. One of my favorite MN trails to ride.
