Root River Trail is open once again from flooding last week.

Bike Pic Sept 30, Root River Trail is Open Once Again from Flooding

With the exception of a 50 foot length of blacktop between, Whalan and Peterson on the Root River Trail, the popular recreational trail survived the heavy rains and flooding last week. The MN DNR office announce that the trail completely open.

Also, the repaving of the trail between Peterson and Rushford planned, which was supposed to start on Monday, Oct. 3 will not happen until the spring of  2017.  The contractor is way behind with other projects and did not want to rip up the trail if he couldn’t finish it this fall.  His new completion date will be May 26, 2017.

Bike Pic Sept 24, Get Your Selfie on the Root River Taste of the Trail

Get your picture taken on the Root River Taste of the Trail. Today the event is in Houston and Rushford on the east side of the 67 mile trail system. See more about biking in Southeast Minnesota and the nine Root River Trail Towns along the paved trail for you to visit. Photo opportunity at Norsland Lefse, in Downtown Rushford, MN.

Recent Root River Flood Notice

The Root River is currently over the trail in places beginning about 1.5 miles east of Rushford towards Houston and is expected to continue rising before cresting. Bike travel is not recommended along the Root River Trail. There is also a report of trail damage between Peterson and Whalan, including a 50-100 foot stretch that the river lifted and set back down leaving the pavement (new last summer!) quite damaged. Bicyclists should use extreme caution. Mud is being cleared off the trail in other trail areas.

Taste of the Trail activities will still occur in Houston and Rushford today, so stop by these communities to enjoy what they have to offer…as sunshine is in the forecast for at least one day this weekend!
