Dakota to Minnetonka Loop Ramble Professional Review and Guide
"It’s mostly crushed limestone trail as you loop around Lake Minnetonka, connecting the Dakota Rail Regional Trail to the southern Lake Minnetonka LRT Regional Trail in Excelsior for a 20-mile ride west of the Twin Cities. Wayzata Beach and Lake Minnetonka in general are popular weekend getaways during the warmer, humid summer months. It also makes for a logical start to this 20-mile loop that connects both the Dakota Rail Regional Trail and the Lake Minnetonka LRT Regional Trail. It’s worth mentioning, though, that the Luce Line Regional Trail is a short mile or so away on the northern edge of Wayzata."
