Lake Wobegon Trail

Recommend!

July, 2024 by xgqrms2jbn

I rode from Albany to West Union. I wish there were long trails like this where I live. Very well maintained and smooth. I hope to take the north leg to the covered bridge also.

Glacial Lakes State Trail

Nice ride

July, 2024 by xgqrms2jbn

I rode from Paynesville to Spicer. There were a few wide cracks you wouldn't want to get caught off guard but otherwise the trail is in good repair. The trail is closed just a bit past Hawick heading west but I was able to move over to the closed hwy 23 for a mile or so to detour back to the trail. Very nice summer's day ride. I would recommend riding this trail if you have the chance.

Central Lakes State Trail

Nice ride for all

September, 2023 by thekauz

The leaves were turning colors and the weather cool when I rode. Black top trail in good condition. It’s a combination of open areas and rides through tree lined sections. It would be a great ride year round for the property prepared.

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.

Soo Line Recreational Trail

Worse maintained Trail in the state

August, 2023 by bgau

Morrison County does a terrible job maintaining the trail. If you don’t remove fallen branches yourself, it won’t get done. During the last two summers, I have experienced most of the major trails in the state. I see all sorts of conditions, including smoothness of the trail to debris not removed. Lake Wobegon Trail, which is located mainly in Stearns County, is one of the best maintained trails in the state. The Root River Trail is also one of the best. I do not recommend the Soo Line Trail due to lack of maintenance.

Lake Wobegon Trail

fabuloso

August, 2023 by bkel

Great surface, beautiful farmland. Didn’t make it to the covered bridge.

Ox Cart Trail

Nice shaded walk, under the Bridge of Hope

July, 2023 by johnand1951

Doesn’t seem to be heavily used. The surface is pretty rough and it could use some signage. Part of it is next to the railroad tracks which is not shaded and the train that went through when we were there was going quite fast.

Luce Line Trail

Nice Suburban to Country Trail

July, 2023 by trob4cy

The east end of the trail is in the suburban Twin Cities and provides connection into Twin Cities trail network. As you move west you get into more rural areas around Hutchinson. If going through Winsted will need to use road for a bit. The far western portion of the trial around Cedar Mills switches from a crushed limestone to other aggregate so be prepared if going that far west.

In Orono / Long Lake you can connect to Baker Park and Lake Independence Trail (Maple Plain and Loretto area) then further north on path along Co. Rd. 19 to Old Hanover Bridge by River Inn, and to St. Michael along path beside Co. Rd. 146.

There is also a connector trail to Delano up Co Rd 30 but the surface can be poorly maintained. Once in Delano you can connect into Lake Rebecca Park and Rockford.

Dakota Rail Regional Trail

Nice way to take in Lake Minnetonka

Nice surface and well maintained trail. Stop by the Minnetonka drive in while in Mound.

Beaver Islands Trail

trail closed on 06/10/2023

June, 2023 by kerryayer

Drove and unloaded only to find out the trail was closed. Appears they are resurfacing the trail which is awesome but it would be nice if we could have known prior to driving there. Also, if they could post how long it’s going to be closed that would be nice too!! We will try again another time and hopefully be able to give this a good rating for a short trail.
