The Cannon Valley, 40 miles south of the Twin Cities, offers a wide range of bike riding options. Most first time visitors come for the Cannon Valley Bike Trail, a paved 20 mile trail along the south side of the Cannon River, but there is so much more riding available in this land of diverse landscapes. Road riders will enjoy County Road 1 as it climbs from the Mississippi River Valley in Red Wing to the rural highlands of Goodhue County, then rolls up and down along the ridge top before dropping into Cannon Falls. Gravel road enthusiasts will find several options for branching off the trail and returning, including a scenic ride along the north side of the Cannon River. Finally, you can explore the Mississippi River Bottoms by riding Collischan Road. This road drops to marsh level and is subject to flooding in the spring, but that intimacy with the vast backwaters of the Mississippi River is part of its appeal. Two non-technical National Forest Service trails in the area go deeper into the woods along water ways and high bluffs. You will need a mountain bike and minimal riding skills to navigate the trails.
