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

Root River State Trail

Great family trail

October, 2023 by sabress82

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.

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.

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.

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.

Elm Creek Park Reserve Trails

Best place to ride in the twin cities

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.

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.

Greenway of Greater Grand Forks

Worth the Trip

September, 2023 by kaisasw

My husband and I debated whether or not to drive north to experience this trail because there was rain in the forecast. It was a spectacular ride and only a bit of drizzle in the morning. We stopped at the farmers market and then continued around. At times we got a little confused but it was easy to get back on the right path. The people in Grand Forks are exceptionally friendly. We highly recommend it.
