Most Beautiful Trail in Minnesota?
People have used the word "magical" to describe this breathtaking trail. Is it the best in Minnesota?
The Cannon Valley Trail occupies the route of a former Chicago Great Western railroad line. The nearly 20 mile trail runs along the Cannon River from Cannon Falls to Red Wing. The trail is open year round, sunrise until 10pm.
According to the Cannon Valley Trail website, "trail users age 18 and older (under age 18 are free) must have a valid Wheel Pass when using bicycles, in-line skates, skateboards, or similar wheeled recreational devices, from April through November 1st."
I always run on the Douglas Trail in Northwest Rochester and I’ve never seen anything like what I saw today. I didn’t make it very far on today’s run before coming across this crazy scene. I had to stop and watch.
