“Root River Trail”
Reviewed May 29, 2012

The bike trail is one of the nicest State trails in MN. The ride was in and out of wooded areas, Mostly wooded and not many hills. The trail ran along the the river and people were tubing in the river. The town of Lanesboro was a small but quaint place. Its about 2 hours from St Paul but well worth the drive down. The landscapes on the way with the open fields and valleys are simple breath taking.

“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.
