Elm Creek Park Reserve Trails

My first time at Elm Creek

September, 2021 by tomlinn001

I chose to ride Elm Creek expecting a great ride. It was so beautiful. I TrueType enjoyed the nicely maintained paved paths thru woodlands, meadows, lakes, and low land areas. Would I go again? In a heart beat. Tom

Great paved trail with mile markers to either go for a quick mile or two or a full rollerblade workout! Dog friendly and a beautiful scenery!

Elm Creek Park Reserve Trails

good one!

July, 2021 by kj2train

Slight rolling hills. Great meadow and tree lined trails. Not a lot of people. If you take the loop around it is about 14 miles. The pathway is super smooth. Highly recommend!

Dakota Rail Regional Trail

Dakota resurfaced

July, 2021 by mikebob_tl

Amazing smooth ride where the trail has been resurfaced. West of Mound to the Carver cty line. As I live by this trail I ride it alot. Usually from Mound to Meyer. Nice surfaced ride with changing scenery.

Elm Creek Park Reserve Trails

Easy to get to from other trail systems

July, 2021 by lmmathis

Great views of meadows and water. Lots of delightful benches. A great swimming pool/lake to take a dip and buy some ice cream in the summer. Coming from the south I took the Medicine Lake Regional to get here and the the Rice Lake local trails out. These trails added some nice distance (though not as perfectly smooth) to the 20 without ever biking on a street.

Luce Line Trail

Hutchinson to Silver Lake

July, 2021 by adsaxs

We road out-and-back from the Masonic West Riverside Park campground in Hutchinson to Silver Lake which is approximately 20 miles round trip. The trail is fully paved in this section . It is a combination of shade and full sun as the trail meanders through cornfields.

The trail could use a little maintenance in certain sections. There were tree roots and wide cracks across the path but overall the trail in this segment was pretty good. It felt like a slight uphill grade to Silver Lake so we enjoyed a bit of a downhill back into Hutchinson. A few benches along the way but no other amenities except for Hutchinson.

Hutchinson has a number of parks along the trail with benches and sculptures which are very nice. I would recommend this trail.

Medicine Lake Regional Trail

Nice trail - more hills than you might have expcected

July, 2021 by david.preston1

We really enjoyed this trail on our E-bikes. A lot of lakes and woods to enjoy. We started at Medicine Lake -- a lot of the first quarter or so is a bit bumpy. Some long hills you might want to be aware of. Once you get to the end of the trail at Elm Creek it is another couple (?) miles before you get to any facilities. The trail was well marked, I have seen other reviews saying it wasn't. It was a nice 40 mile ride on a hot day.

Luce Line Trail

gravel road mostly

July, 2021 by vjskh4xbxn

Mostly gravel. Good ride. Road bikes watch out , if they are not made for gravel. Overall good, did 100 miles round trip from Schaper Park. Next time I will start at mile 0 of Luce Line State trail

Paul Bunyan State Trail

Fabulous Ride

June, 2021 by jmclincoln

Just completed the Paul Bunyan Trail from Brainerd to the end of the paved path at the Blue Ox Trail. The trail is in pretty good shape and wends it’s way through small, friendly towns for the most part. Most bike accommodating is Bemidji with trails around town and out to the State Park. Least bike accommodating is Walker. Soulshine Bike Shop in Hackensack has a reasonably priced shuttle.

Dakota Rail Regional Trail

Nice ride

June, 2021 by lkoerit01

We did a RT from Wayzata to St Bonifacious. Had a a nice brunch at the St Boni Bistro. Trail is in in good condition. Very enjoyable ride.

Luce Line Trail

Paved Sections

June, 2021 by amosvo15

Coming from Minneapolis, once you near the city of Winsted, the paved section of the trail is very pleasing. Smooth, clear of debris and beautiful nature signs along the way to the rest of the trail. The cities along the entire trail offer food, restrooms, campsites and the amenities you might need. Well shaded trail due to the abundance of trees on the sides. Yes time to ride this trail is when it is dry, especially for road cyclist.
