Cannon Valley Trail

Great day in Iowa

June, 2021 by morganst2

We stayed in Cedar Rapids on our way to Minnesota and had heard about the Cannon Valley Trail. We weren’t sure where to start and the condition of the trail so thought We’d leave a review. We started at Cedar Lake and headed south rewards Ely. In hind-site it would have been better to start at the Czech village where there is plenty of parking. It’s confusing to ride through town. The path to Ely was great and we had heard that the path to Solon was not good, but it has been recently redone and is in great shape. We road 18 miles out and back for 36 total. Very enjoyable ride. Also quite a few restaurants and brewpubs at Czech village(we stopped at Lion Brewery) and would give it a thumbs up too. If your going north you could probably park at Cedar Lake and go north but we didn’t complete that part. Will try that next time. It was a great find and enjoyed it all

Lake Independence Regional Trail

Goes through woods and farmlands & connects to Luce Line Trail

June, 2021 by gladbrook33

Lovely trail north through Baker Park Reserve and then parallels Hwy 19.
Pass by scenic farms & thru little town of Loretto. At end of trail, turn west bordering Crow -Hassen Park Reserve. When the paved trail ends, turn right to see the historic bridge in Hanover. Little of the original town remains, but the old River Inn is worth a stop.
Heading south from Baker Park Reserve follow the signs leading you thru Orono and the Trail Head for the Luce Line

Sakatah Singing Hills State Trail

trail NOT closed June 4,2021

June, 2021 by brophy73

I rode from Faribault to a few miles past Madison Lake. Great paved trail in pristine condition. There was HIGHWAY/ROAD closure by Elysian on the road parallel to the trail for a couple miles. BUT, the paved trail is in the trees and NOT on the road…so no problem for riding. I did start at 6am to beat the 97f heat. 63mile round trip.


Cherokee Trail

Cherokee/Vento Trail

June, 2021 by tomeggum

This is shown on some trail maps and signs as the West Side continuation of the Bruce Vento Trail. And…it connects to the upstream end of the Robert Piram Trail at the edge of Harriet Island.

Minnehaha Trail

Beautiful, but rough

June, 2021 by janet.l.evans

South of E 54th is rough, and it's steep up to Ft. Snelling. Worth the ride the greenery.

West River Parkway Trail

Down to Fort Snelling and back on the east Side -- Adventures!

June, 2021 by janet.l.evans

We were visiting Minneapolis from Colorado with our Bromptons in the back of the car, exploring. This exploration was a long afternoon, starting at N 4th Ave and riding down river, stopping for lunch at a coffee shop. Great views of the river. At Minnehaha Park, we wandered around a bit, then headed south to Fort Snelling on the Minnehaha trail. It appeared that Minnehaha intersected a trail that would take us across the river, and we would the ride trails back to the Stone Arch bridge to cross to the starting point. Note that the southern stretch of the Minnehaha is rough surface. When we arrived at the "intersection", the other trail was about 100ft over our heads. It's steep up to Ft. Snelling, and then three flights of stairs down to the bridge (there's a gutter to assist with rolling the bikes). Across the bridge there are stairs up to the trail. Going north was again great views, but then the trail ended at a blockage. We followed the well signed detour through the neighborhoods, and back on to the trail. It did take a little searching just north of the Uni. of Minnesota Twin City to find the trail to the Stone Arch Bridge. Steep at times on the east side through the Uni.

Loon Lake Trail System

Pavement is good and the view of Loon Lake is nice. Clear Lake trail is better if you're in the area but still had fun here.

Dakota Rail Regional Trail

Beautiful,well kept trail

May, 2021 by jhspoon

Today we rode the trail from St. Bonis to Mayer. It was a beautiful ride. Great scenery, well kept trail. We’ll definitely do it again.

Elm Creek Park Reserve Trails

Very well paved with some rolling hills as other reviewers have mentioned. The trail is gorgeous as it passes over fields and under trees. Easy to moderate difficulty.

Great Northern Greenway

Favorite route to the Minneapolis riverfront

May, 2021 by mplsbikerdan

The Great Northern Greenway is one of my favorite routes to the Minneapolis riverfront where I can enjoy nature and the ever changing river. Each day and season is a unique sightseeing adventure. On my way there, I pass through vibrant, northeast neighborhoods with historic architecture, outdoor sculptures and unique shops. In addition to riding north or south along the river, I often travel along the Grand Rounds and Victory Memorial Drive before returning home. My rides can be anywhere between five to fifty mile loops pending weather, energy and available time

Bruce Vento Regional Trail

Phalen Creek trail

May, 2021 by tomeggum

North of the Mississippi River (it flows EW through downtown St. Paul) the Vento Trail follows an old Phalen Creek railroad to Phalen Lake. South of the river the trail shown on TrailLink as the Cherokee Trail is also signed as part of the Bruce Vento Trail.

Willard Munger State Trail (Gateway State Trail)

Citified start

May, 2021 by tomeggum

The southern section between Cayuga St. and Arlington Ave. in St. Paul, starts with a view of the Trout Brook Nature Preserve (with a fine trail that does not connect at the north end) but quickly becomes sandwiched between junkyards and I-35E. Good it's there. Very urban.
