You are invited to experience the beautiful Cannon Valley Trail. 

 

3-26-2015   -   The entire Cannon Valley Trail is open for biking, hiking and inline skating.  

The Cannon Valley Trail is a 19.7 mile long trail that runs through diverse and  spectacular scenery on a former Chicago Great Western Railroad line connecting the cities of Cannon Falls, Welch and Red Wing in beautiful southeastern Minnesota. 

Paralleling the Cannon River, the Trail offers glimpses and panoramas of the valley and gradually descends 115 feet in elevation from Cannon Falls to Red Wing.  From overhanging cliffs to views of extensive wetland complexes, nature's seasonal changes are vividly displayed.  

The Trail is open year round for bicycling, in-line skating, skateboarding, hiking and walking, and similar wheeled recreational devices.  Trail users age 18 or older must have a valid Wheel Pass when using the trail from April 1st - November 1st .  During the snow season, cross-country skiing is a common trail activity.  The Great Minnesota Ski Pass is required to cross-country ski on the Cannon Valley Trail.

 


2015 Wheel Passes are on sale now. The 2015 Wheel Pass Season runs from April 1 through November 1. Wheel passes are required for visitors aged 18 (under 18 are free) and older when using bicycles, in-line skates, skate boards or similar wheeled recreational devices. Season passes are available from several local merchants, trailside pay stations, and the trail office. For your convenience, a 2015 Wheel Pass order form is printed here.
