Red Jacket Trail Professional Review and Guide
"Named after a Seneca Indian chief who lived in the area until the 1830s, the Red Jacket Trail runs along an old Milwaukee Road (formerly the Minnesota Railroad and the Central Railroad) right-of-way that became inactive in 1978.
The Red Jacket Trail begins at the restored depot along the banks of the Minnesota River, west of downtown Mankato, and runs to the village of Rapidan."
