The Minnesota DNR annouced that a local bike trail will be closed near Fountain for bridgework.

According to the MnDNR, the area of the bridgework is in between Fountain and Lanesboro to replace decking and pave over the two bridges. This will occur from Sept 9th to October 31st from Fountain to the Isinours Foresty Unit. This is the far west section of the trail.

For those looking to bike around Southeast Minnesota during one of the best times of year to do it, you want to keep that in mind. Although the trail will remain open from Preston to Lanesboro, and Lanesboro to Whalan.

This weekend the Taste of the Trail hits Peterson, Whalan and Lanesboro, so be sure to hit up those towns to see what they have to offer and enjoy the beautiful views of Southeast Minnesota.
