The site along the river here is a place that native inhabitants and early settlers, as well as recent visitors, have used as a place to meet. Located where the Mississippi River parts, this ride tours up along the river’s west bank to Camp Ripley. After a brief stop at the Military Museum, you will cross the river and ride to the southeast and skirt past a wildlife refuge and into a village of the past. Riding along the Platte River, you will soon pass through a town named after a town in Vermont. Then, after crossing the Mississippi again, you will soon arrive at Charles A. Lindbergh’s boyhood home. This is just one of the many attractions you will encounter while touring parts of Great River Road Scenic Byway back to the gathering place.
