Fall is here and that means winter is coming soon. But before the snow and ice arrives, there is still time to get enjoy the beautiful Minnesota outdoors. Fall is an especially beautiful time in Minnesota as the leaves are changing and the landscape comes alive. While we believe there is no better way to enjoy autumn colors than taking your Land Rover for a scenic drive, we can agree taking a bike ride through some of the state’s top trails is a close second.

Minnesota has hundreds of bike trails scattered across the state. From delightful paved trails, to city trails and even rough open terrain mountain trails, Minnesota is a biking enthusiasts paradise.  So where should you start your biking journey? While any trail is sure to have a beautiful view, we have made a list of some of our favorite biking trails to see the fall leaves.

Gateway Trail

This breathtaking trail runs northeast out of an industrial area in St. Paul’s North End. Home to 18 miles of paved trail, Gateway trail runs through East End’s urban woods. Along the way you can stop in Stillwater or Square Lake for some quaint small town charm.

East or West River Parkways

These two biking parkways provide key routes of transportation between Minneapolis and St. Paul. Winding around Highland Park, atop the River Bluff and along Summit Avenue, the views at the Mississippi overlook are hard to beat during the fall months.

Cedar Lake Trail

Known as the nation’s first cycling freeway, Cedar Lake Trail runs from River Road in downtown Minneapolis all the way to the western suburbs. This flat and easy navigated trail will get you where you need to go in the metro while surrounding you with lush fall foliage.
