Moderate
A quick loop out of town with one moderate climb; it’s an easy after-work favorite.  You’ll cross the Mississippi and follow the highway along the river valley south.  In Brownsville, Minnesota the route turns inland and starts a steady climb through farm country to the top of the bluffs for a few miles before a fast sweeping downhill.  Hokah offers a few convenience stops, then the route returns on either the wide shoulder of Hwy 16 or a slower ramble along the Root River on Cty Hwy 7.
