Long Route # 15: Wanamingo - Cannon Falls (50 miles)

Start in Bridge Park (Hwy 57 and CR 30, on North side of Wanamingo), rest room in the park. Ride west on CR 30. Two large hills at Sogn, one on the way to Cannon Falls and one on the way back (No restrooms in Sogn). Cannon Falls is 30 miles and has many places to eat, fast food on south end and causal dining downtown near trail head (between Main and Mill St, just off 4th). Two good places on Mill St west. (Stone Mill has patio seating) Cross Hwy 52 at lights on CR 24, turn LEFT onto 64th Ave and ride into the shopping center parking lot, stay to the right of the shopping center and head NORTH to a Car wash. There is a bike path that will take to a little housing area follow Street north to the first street you can turn right. Follow a short ways to 4th St. Turn Left if you want go into Cannon Falls.

Leaving Cannon Falls retrace your route to CR 24, cross Hwy 52 at lights and follow the Frontage rd. (64th Ave) south along Hwy 52. Pass the traffic lights to the next Hwy crossing. Pull onto the wide shoulder of Hwy 52 and follow south for about 2 miles to CR 14.

The county roads are pretty smooth with very little traffic (2004). This is a very nice ride.
