Root River Trail: Rushford to Whalan
There aren't as many pictures from this trip because most of it overlaps the Lanesboro to Peterson ride. This time we started from Rushford and went the other way. We arrived a little later than usual so we ate lunch in Rushford before we started. McGeorge's steak and burger is a local place and while the food was good enough, service was rather slow. It seemed like they were having some trouble and I hope this isn't normal. Of course, we had pie in Whalan. The ride itself starts in the open running parallel to a highway. After a couple of miles it goes back in the trees and meets with the river. The round trip is just over 27 miles.

If you're going to start your ride in Rushford and you're coming from Rochester, it's faster not to go by 52 south to Fountain. If you travel east on I-90 to 43 South, it's a faster drive.
