The Root River Trail System


Friday, June 23 - Saturday, June 24 ā—¸ 2017

Welcome to the 3rd Annual 60-Mile Garage Sale in the towns along the Root River State Trail in Southeast Minnesota! Several years ago, the nine towns along the trail created the nonprofit organization known as The Root River Trail Towns. This year will be our third year of coordinating the 60-Mile Garage Saleā€”another opportunity to showcase our towns and the beautiful bluff and river valley landscape between them. Check back closer to the event for the Google Map that will bring you to all the garage sales.

Welcome to the website of the Root River Trail System, an online guide to Southeast Minnesota's premier recreational trail system, The Root River and Harmony-Preston Valley Trails. This 60-mile paved trail network meanders along the Root River amid 300-foot bluffs, attracting thousands of outdoor enthusiasts each season.

This website is a comprehensive directory of services available trailwide, from Fountain on the west, to Houston on the east, to Harmony on the south. You will also find information about the communities along the trail. Please use the links above to explore this site.
