“One of the Best”
Reviewed March 27, 2012

One of the best rail to trail in the country. If you are looking for a good rail to trail this is the one t ogo to. the towns along the way are great. get a shuttle and go one way. it's the only way to go.

“Tubing was fun!”
Reviewed March 26, 2012

We went tubing down the river and their is an outfitter in Lansboro, MN that will rent tubes and pick you up on a bus at a specific spot and time. The water was deep and shallow enough that you had to get up and walk so you would not scrape your hind end. It is fun to hook tubes together as a group and bring along a cooler full of drinks!

“Fun canoeing trip!”
Reviewed February 4, 2012

GREAT river to go kayaking/canoeing/tubing. We've camped at the Eagle Cliff campground the past two summers and they dropped us off up the river and have a landing right at the campground to get out at. River has MANY spots to stop along the river and get out to swim, eat, drink, play. There are a few small rapids along the way that add a little fun. Great way to spend the afternoon.

The Root River is in bluff country. Small towns located along the Root River that winds its way thought the bluffs (outsiders call them mountains), lots of wildlife (including whitetail deer, bald eagles, coyote, wild turkey, etc) and known for great fishing and hunting, A state bike trail follows the river, river is also great to tube or canoe. Lots of hiking trails in summer and snowmobile trails in winter. Golf courses, shops, horseback riding, etc.
