This Reader's Route comes from David Strachan in Northfield, Minnesota. Starting and ending right in town, this is great gravel loop for beautiful evenings with friends.
Submission from David Strachan:
One of our favorite evening gravel loops heads west to Union Lake. The views from Dalton Avenue are worth the trip across the freeway. The rollers on 57th are guaranteed to please as well.
Last year a two mile section of this course was paved 😞 but the roads by the lakes are some of our favorites. If you run this loop counter clockwise watch the downhill on Union Lake Trail. Sometimes the surface is loose and can be a problem.
