Root River State Trail (Minnesota) Harmony-Preston Valley State Trail
    Located in the far southeast corner of Minnesota, the Root River Trail has now been completed to Houston, and is 43 miles long.  The trail runs along the Root River, which is quite popular with canoeists and inner-tubers. The path goes through Minnesota bluff country, which is some of the most scenic countryside in the state.  Some bikers get dropped off in Fountain and are later picked up in Lanesboro, as the west to east direction is mostly down hill.  Lanesboro is one of the most picturesque towns on the Root River Trail. There are many little shops and eating places that cater to bicyclists. The Root River is one nice trail !!

    The Harmony-Preston Trail connects with the Root River Trail about halfway between Fountain and Lanesboro.  From this point down to Harmoy is 18 miles.  From Isinours Junction to several miles south of Preston, the trail is quite flat and nicely shaded.  Then there are several hills as it climbs out of the River Valley.  From then on, there are just small gently rolling hills into Harmony.  This is an Amish farming area, so one might see buggies, or horses pulling farm equipment.  This is a great trail, as it offers just a little bit of everything.
