The 20-mile Cannon Valley Trail from Cannon Falls to Red Wing through Welch is a remote trail between the meandering Cannon River and tall bluffs less than hour from the metropolitan area. The trail is highlighted by wildflowers often under the canopy of lush trees.
The trail also features several interpretive sites as well as rest stops with benches, water, toilets and historical information and the cities of Red Wing and Cannon Falls offer historic and colorful business districts.
Users of the trail are required to purchase a wheel pass of $4 per day or $25 for a Seasonal Pass but it’s well worth it and helps fund trail maintenance. Read More:
