Motorcycling and Routes


The St. Croix Valley of Minnesota and Wisconsin is a motorcycling haven for those that are looking for winding roads, grand views, friendly communities and incredible hospitality.

A Favorite Ride: Pick your state and wind your way through beautifully sculptured landscape. A favorite motorcycle route is Minnesota Hwy. 95 following the St. Croix River from Taylors Falls, WI to Prescott, WI. In Prescott, head south on Hwy. 61 along the Mississippi River into Red Wing, MN. For a longer ride, continue on Hwy. 61 south to LaCresent, MN. Cross the river into Wisconsin and ride Wisconsin Hwy 35 (Great River Road), as it hugs the river on the east side.

Riding through the Valley not only will you find great back roads to explore but you will have the opportunity to visit some of the most beautiful National and State Parks in the Midwest.
