Root River Trail Towns

Just 22 miles west of La Crosse, you will find the start of Minnesota’s premier bike trail system:  the Root River Trail and Harmony-Preston Valley Trail.  Enjoy 60 miles of paved trail – with no fees – in beautiful bluff country.  The trail system primarily follows the winding Root River with quaint towns found every 5-12 miles.  Find places to stay, places to eat, and more to do in each community.  The non-profit Root River Trail Towns organization promotes the trail systems as a regional destination, links people to an outdoor experience, and fosters community connections.
