Our ride begins at the Welch station, 0.25 mile south of the little town of the same name. Ample parking is available off CR 7, but fills up fast on sunny weekend days. This is an excellent ride through high river bluffs with a great fall color route, easy access, and superb trail conditions. There are good chances to spot all sorts of wildlife both on the ground and in the air and picturesque pastureland to your right with ponds and streams and cows. The trail ends at the outskirts of downtown Red Wing. Signs are posted to take you to this charming town. Plan on spending some time there soaking up the atmosphere. Your return to Welch will be slightly uphill, but it’s nothing you can’t handle. Tread: Entire ride is on paved trail.
