There are many ways to enjoy the Sakatah Singing Hills State Trail. Some like to start at one of the trailheads and bike out and back. If you are curious to know what lies past the trail, this ride is for you. The route makes a big swing through the transition zone where the Big Woods once merged with the vast prairies of the scenic Southern Minnesota Lakes Region. As you ride west around the upper side of a string of lakes that flow into the Cannon River, enjoy the rolling terrain. The first half of the ride wobbles around marshes, along cornfields, and through wildlife areas, allowing you to see many songbirds frolic in the breeze as you pass by. Coming full circle back to the trail in Elysian, you have an opportunity to visit several resort towns on the ride back.
