After we combine at Mound, we will follow this easy and beautiful ride along the newly resurfaced Dakota State Trail. This 12 mile part of the tour takes us through beautiful countryside filled with farm animals, fertile fields, forestry land and wonderfully landscaped homes. There's always something to see!
The path is a gentle and completely paved trail with occassional traffic crossings. There are pile post barriers at either side of some of the roads we cross (to stop ATV traffice). While narrow, they are easily passable by our Pedegos.
Before turning around at Maher, we will visit the Carver County Veteran's Memorial, a unique and special tribute to all branches of service through the ages.
Those who wish may stop at Mackenthun's in St. Boni for coffee and a snack (they close at 6 pm) or Grumpys for burgers, pizza and fries. There is also wine tasting at the Winery at Sovereign Estate.
Mound has the BEST ice cream shop just steps off the trail.
And Wayzata has a wealth of places to eat.
