I am from Minneapolis and when I discovered the Root River, the Valley, and the Root River Trail, I knew this was where I wanted to retire. Bought a place in Peterson and love it!

Definitely worth everything, such a cute town full of history. Peaceful and helped me escape the world for a weekend

What can one say, this is a stunning bike trail and lovely little B&B towns in between. This is one of my favorite bike trails - if you have not biked this trail, you are really missing out on a lovely experience.

We just loved our bike rides on this trail. So scenic, and very flat in most parts. You would have the river on one side, and a corn field on the other. We saw wildlife, too. This is one of the most beautiful bike rides I have ever been on. Please ask a local where to go... it makes it easier to calculate how long you will be biking.

It was lovely walking down the paved paths near the river, the water was calming and we really enjoyed bird watching.
