In the beautiful southeastern Minnesota valley, this trail has picturesque views of river bluffs. Built on former railroad grade, the Great River Ridge State Trail is also a fairly easy ride.
When complete, the trail will be paved for 15 miles, and travel between the cities of Plainview and Eyota. Currently, there are 13 miles of paved trail from Plainview, south through the town of Elgin and continues on to County Road 9. Summer uses are primarily bicycling, in-line skating, and hiking.
