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.

Big Rivers Regional Trail

Nice overlooks, but lack of connectivity

October, 2023 by rmtrsws6g4

I took this trail on the tail end of a longer ride and enjoyed some of the views overlooking the Minnesota River. However, I was super disappointed with the lack of any continuation of bike dedicated lanes or paths at the Western end of the trail. It would be nice to have some easier way to get to trails further West without having to ride along the shoulder of a highway.

Minnesota River Bluffs LRT Regional Trail

Fun gravel ride

October, 2023 by rmtrsws6g4

This has been on my to-do list for a while. Finally did it out-back from Hopkins and it didn’t disappoint. Great views and interesting scenery. The signage could be better around highway 62 and in Chaska, but it’s pretty good elsewhere. Looking forward to riding it again next year!

Grand Rounds Scenic Byway

Grand Round October7th

October, 2023 by pem30913

Delightful day touring 24 miles of Grand Round while visiting family. Friendly encounters with bikers with several places to stop, rest, and relax. The vistas of the Mississippi River balanced the clean and colorful trails.

Cannon Valley Trail

Good Trail

October, 2023 by kackman_11

My first time on this trail was today. Started seeing some nice fall colors on the trees. Beautiful scenic ride with cliffs, hills and valley. The overall trail was really nice. Nicely kept up and very smooth to ride on. Only down fall was that it was too narrow. Could use about another foot on each side

Sakatah Singing Hills State Trail

Scenic. Gradual elevation change. Smooth.

October, 2023 by l_kunz

Context: Rode trail end to end both directions on a m road bike w 700 X 23m tires. Past reviews seem accurate wrt beauty of surrounding landscape. Disregard older reviews re poor pavement conditions. The pavement is smooth end to end. An occasional weather crack (closer to Faribault) is typically marked. Would ride again on same bike any day.

Luce Line Trail

Thompson Lake (Cosmos) to Silver Lake

September, 2023 by bethanyrust

I covered the Thompson Lake to Oddfellows Park in Hutch at the end of July on a bike. There is plenty of parking and shade at Cosmos County Park and a bathroom with running water. The trail starts as Cadillac gravel through trees and then pops out to a gravel parking lot next to grain bins and a business. At the 4 way stop, it’s an easy crossing of highway 7 and a Casey’s to load up on snacks and water. It isn’t well marked to pick the trail back up, make a left at Gemini Ave and you find the sign for the trail. This is where the fun begins in my opinion. It starts gravel, but turns to grass. At the time I rode, the grass had not been mowed, but was 100% rideable. Your mileage may vary depending on bike and fitness level. The grass section is about 8 miles and incredibly beautiful to be riding through sloughs and catching a glimpse of what this prairie once was. The trail turns back to gravel after Cedar Mills, then eventually pavement near Hutch. An easy access gas station with bathrooms and water refill and snacks is next to Oddfellows Park. Though the parks in this section have restrooms as well.

Continuing on the trail, you arrive in a campground that accommodates both RVs and tents next to the Crow Wing River. Plenty of shade, a beautiful view of the river, and each spot has a fire ring and a picnic table. You will get traffic noise, but the location and amenities are worth it. The city of Hutchinson has done an impressive job incorporating this trail as a city resource. I saw lots of walkers, runners, and young kids on bikes using the trail to navigate the area.

Continuing on to Silver Lake, the trail surface is paved, but gets a little more rough. There are areas where some of the cracks are large enough to grab a narrow tire, so mind the gap. The scenery on this September ride was beautiful. I made the side trip to the Crow Wing Winery, just to check out the gravel trail. This is also a worthy stop for yummy food and a glass of wine, with both indoor and outdoor seating. The trail to Silver Lake remains about the same with lots of sumac and trees to shade the trail.

I absolutely think this would make a wonderful and pretty easy bikepacking trip.

Luce Line Trail

The trail is a really nice trail to ride, nice scenery when you ride. However, once you get past Cedar Mills heading West towards Cosmos. That's when it changes grass is thick and makes hard to ride.

Bryant Lake Regional Park Trail

Loops from Bryant Lake to Lone Lake Parks

August, 2023 by jarad.jackson

This is not a destination trail, but does loop between the two parks and go under highway 62. It’s mostly gravel north of 62 and paved south of it and the part in Lone Lake park is very hilly. It also goes past the Lone Lake mountain bike loops if you’re looking for more adventure.

Rice Creek West Regional Trail

Nice, not crowded

August, 2023 by schaecherj

Bike the trail and especially liked the area between Central and University. Almost like a state forest!

Minnesota Valley State Trail

Horse trail or dirt bike maybe?

August, 2023 by plyman38

I attempted this trail for the first time last week. I agree with one of the reviews where the beginning point in Belle Plaine is tough to find. The parking lot is may be enough for three or four cars gets washed out dirt all rutted. After unloading my bike, I went to what appeared to be the entrance completely overgrown with weeds. My E bike gives me 40 miles to a battery. I tried going through just a mile and coming back, a total of 2 miles, it used up 25% of my battery due to so much mud. It would be perfect for a gas dirtbike. Not worth a trip.
