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.
