We're excited to share a new Minnesota bikepacking route that connects the Amtrak stations in St. Paul and Winona. You can "chase the train" out of the metro area and its suburban sprawl and into the river towns of Cannon Falls and Redwing. You'll then climb back out of the river valley and traverses the top of the bluffs before descending back down into Winona. Upon arriving in Winona you board the Amtrak and ride the rails back to Saint Paul.
This route is now available to Patrons on our Adventure Team tier. To early access to this route and all future bikepacking routes and gravel guides, join us on Patreon.
