+ COURSE DESCRIPTION

EXPLORE THE HERITAGE TRAIL, THE UPPER MIDWEST'S MOST SCENIC ALL-SEASON TRAIL.

You'll be sure to PR this fast, gently sloping course. Follow an out-and-back route of a once bustling railroad into a 450 foot deep valley past old mining and mill towns while discovering the rugged beauty that welcomes thousands of bicyclists and hikers each year. The mountain trail in prairie country is set in the deep, rugged woodlands with a gently sloping grade making travel easy and enjoyable. You'll view the numerous river outlooks, sheer limestone bluffs, interpretive sites, and railroad artifacts along this beautiful, crushed-limestone trail that will surely be easy on your knees and joints!
