Lake Wobegon Cruise Ride Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"Lake Wobegon, the mythical town from Garrison Keillor’s "Prairie Home Companion," may be fictitious, but the bike trail here has brought the name some solidity. Starting in St. Joseph, this cruise circles two bike trails by using a series of scenic roads.
While passing contoured farm fields with hardwood forest backdrops, the ride meanders its way to Holdingford. Then, veering to the south on its way to Albany, the route intersects at the point where the Soo Trail meets the Lake Wobegon Trail. Now circling to the east, the route travels through an area rich in oak and maple forests. Soon you will pass Saint John’s University and Abbey and then the school’s original location, Collegeville. Back at the park, head downtown and walk around the eminent campus of the College of Saint Benedict."
