Harmony-Preston Valley State Trail

Cleanup debris

June, 2024 by penfre73680

This trail has so many limbs and branches that I saw three people changing flat tires along this trail. Clean it up because riders don’t want to constantly be battling debris on trail.

Root River State Trail

clean up trail

June, 2024 by penfre73680

This trail needs significant attention to clean up all the debris on the pavement . Low branches and old pavement make this trail marginal at best. Use some of Minnesota tax money to cleanup or have locals that benefit from trail clean up all the debris

Root River State Trail

pick up the debris

June, 2024 by peenfre7368

Lots of debris from Lanesboro to Fountain. Don’t know if this is normal but the trail needs maintenance. Saw several people with flat tires from all the debris on trail.

Harmony-Preston Valley State Trail

trail needs maintenance

June, 2024 by peenfre7368

This trail is full of sticks and branches and needs more maintenance to be a pleasurable ride. Does the county or state maintain this trail?

Root River State Trail

Always a favorite

June, 2024 by djmmsherman

We've been on this trail several times and it's consistently great. This time, we started at the trailhead in Lanesboro, biked west and up to Fountain, turned around for a nice mostly-downhill ride, stopped back in Lanesboro for lunch at Pedal Pushers, then onward east toward Rushford. Trail in great shape except for a felled tree from a storm the night before. But easy enough to pick up the bike and carry it over the tree. Aroma Pies in Whalen is a must-do; both coconut cream and banana cream are highly recommended! A nice treat for our 40-mile bike ride that day. So much of this trail curves along the Root River, which makes for beautiful riding.

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.

Awesome!

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.

Casey Jones rail trail

June 1st started at Woodstock MN , brand new paved trail going east tward Pipestone. First 2.5 miles perfect new surfaced trail, second 2,5 miles not new asphalt but smooth. Then the next 5 miles to Pipestone Wes asphalt with cracks all the way. Expect your bike to have rattles and your perineum to be jolted on this section. From Pipestone rode brand new concrete sidewalk trail surrounding the National Monument. Beautiful. Back to Woodstock, 19 miles total. Parked at City Park, one room bathroom, very clean. Bar and grill downtown recommended by a friend looked nice,

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!

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.
