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.

Douglas State Trail

Nice ride

June, 2024 by djmmsherman

We're from the Twin Cities and parked in Pine Island to ride south toward Rochester. Trailhead in Pine Island is nice with restrooms, playground, wooded with asphalt path winding through. Early in the trail, cross the Zumbro River. Nice tree canopy for most of the ride. Missed taking the underpass (trail wasn't marked) and rode about half a mile before we turned around. Back on the trail through lovely rural Minnesota. Did about 13 miles and turned around for a total ride of about 26 miles. Trail in great shape overall and nice ride.

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!

Cedar Lake LRT Regional Trail

trail revamped

May, 2024 by karwal55122

Road along the trail today and it was fabulous through Hopkins and ST Louis Park to the start of MSP. Light rail work being completed and the trail is in excellent condition. It was fun to see the light rail stations along the way.

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.

Cannon Valley Trail

Expensive trail

April, 2024 by hristo.yankov

$30 season pass or a $7 daily, with a "non-cash surcharge" if you try to pay online. The trail is nice, but the fee is getting out of hand.

Empire Township Trail

not enough scenery

October, 2023 by ebecher220

I tried this one out because it’s close by but it wasn’t that fun. Too much pavement right on a major road, exhaust fumes etc. the parts with nice scenery between the two parks felt tiny

Ayd Mill Road Trail

Nice, short below grade cut through

October, 2023 by rmtrsws6g4

A good short cut, removed from the traffic. Agree with the other review that it lacks connectivity to a larger trail plan.
