An approximately 20 mile ride between Cannon Falls and Red Wing, MN with a major stop/trailhead at Welch, MN. Trail is paved and is good riding for road bikes. The ride is scenic as it runs along the Cannon River and woodlands characteristic of the area. A wheel pass is required for the day.

Very well maintained and very popular. There’s steady traffic on the weekends, but be sure to bring bug spray lots and lots of bug spray. There’s stagnant water through the valley.

One of my very favorites. This trail is beautiful. I've biked this trail many times throughout the yrs and never get tired of it. It travels along side the Cannon River in which you can kayak, canoe or raft down. You can rent or bring your own craft for a fun filled day or 2..
