Harmony-Preston Valley State Trail

Awesome!

June, 2024 by unpavedmiddle

Beautiful countryside and very scenic. I rode from Harmony to Preston and back. There are some bumps.Not a problem, but then again I'm not a a Strava segment leader so I don't really care. Rod eon fattish tires. Had me a real good time, and that's really the whole idea. Come. Enjoy. Ignore the Citiots.

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.

Root River State Trail

Great family trail

This trail is awesome! We only went about 16 miles from Houston and then back, but it was very enjoyable. We plan to come back and do another section of trail with our kids.

Root River State Trail

Can I give a SIX star??

October, 2023 by mrmikesch

Best and most favorite trail of the trails we rode in Iowa, Minnesota and Wisconsin on this trip!! Rode 50 miles round-trip, Petersen to fountain. Trail is smooth asphalt. Gorgeous river views along the way. Last 5 miles are uphill to fountain, but a very fun dissent on the return! Second day, Peterson to Houston 36 miles r/t. First 5 miles to Rushford, smooth trail. The remaining 13 miles to Houston, trail has some sinkhole spots and the bridge transitions are rough. Still some river views. Each of the little towns along the trail has a couple restaurants, just call ahead to make sure they’re open during the week.

La Crosse River State Trail

Flat and straight

October, 2023 by mrmikesch

Just an average trail ride. Nothing special. Camped at veterans park. Campground in West Salem. Road the section from West Salem to Sparta. Trail service is good, packed chat. Very straight and boring. Decided not to ride the section from West Salem to La Crosse.

Elroy-Sparta State Trail

Tunnels make the trail 5 star

October, 2023 by mrmikesch

Rode this trail over two days. Camped at Tunnel Trail Campground just east of Wilton. Rode Wilton to Sparta. Two tunnels in the section. Very cool!! The trail surface was mostly OK, except where the trail maintenance tractor had driven on it when the trail was soft and left ruts from the tractor tires. The section from Wilton to a Elroy has one tunnel. Small descent after the tunnel and then flattens out on the way to Elroy. Least favorite part of this ride.

Root River State Trail

Nice Trail, but

September, 2023 by shumakers

The trail is a super ride, lots of nice scenery and a very fast track. However was sorely disappointed that the pie shop in Whalan is only open weekends after labor day. That was to be the highlight of the ride!

Root River State Trail

Nicwst trail in all of Minnesota!

September, 2023 by jkboucher

I spent the month of August riding rail trails around the state, and this was the most scenic and best maintained trail I encountered. Lanesboro is a great little town to stop for lunch or ice cream, and would be a good choice for your riding "headquarters". Camping available at Lanesboro and other points along the trail.
