Rode the trail from Downtown Mankato to Rapidan Dam. The first portion along the river was in pretty tough shape but once we got past the high school, the trail greatly improved. The tree lined portions of the trail was very nice and shaded. Pavement was in generally good shape and certainly smooth for riding The trail from Rapidan out to the Dam was along two low traffic county roads, each with ample shoulder space. Be sure to arrive at the Dam Store with a full appetite as the serve great homemade burgers and pie! The park below the trestle bridge is worth a quick stop for a few pics and water refill.
