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!
