Minnesota has arguably the best collection of bicycle trails in the nation. The scenery is fantastic on most of these trails and the opportunities for camping, picnicking, wildlife sighting and small town tourism abounds.

The POIs will generally be a parking area near a trailhead identified by either the name of a city/town or nearby thoroughfare. If a parking area is not designated, please be respectful of private lands near the trailheads and park at a nearby public facility and please DO NOT leave valuables in your car (especially your GPSr.) wink
