The Root River State Trail is a paved multiuse trail that was developed from an abandoned railroad line. The trail is 42 miles long and runs between the Minnesota towns of Fountain and Houston. A branch known as the Harmony-Preston Valley State Trail links to the Root River trail, near its western terminus. To learn more, visit the trail website: Root River Trail.


Riders who take the trip can follow four basic routes, ranging from 22 to 46 miles. Those who register will be sent information on restaurants and attractions in the area.


You may register to ride 1, 2 or all 3 days, but please register for each day you plan to ride. More information is available from Petra Lynn Hofmann at, (630) 418-4337.
