Written Directions

Route runs about 60 miles southeast of St. Paul. Start your route in Wabasha, MN and head west out of town on Rt 60. You will continue on 60 heading west through West Albany, Zumbro Falls, Mazeppa, and on until Rt 60 runs into US 52 (end point).

Scenery

Lots of hard wood trees as you'll be driving through the heart of the Richard J Dorer Memorial Hardwood State Forest. The path also parallels the path of the Zumbro River. HWY 60 runs from the Eastern part of MN to the Western part and is a great ride across the state with great stops along the way.

Road Quality

Road has a lot of curves so obey posted speeds! Sections of it were re-paved a few years ago. Warning, the section from Zumbrota to Faribault is horrible, it's due for a repave job ASAP...

Roadside Amenities

There are some great Bar/Grills in Zumbro Falls that welcome Motorcycle Riders with open arms.

Road this yesterday on a run down 35 in Wis. then through Wabasha to 52 then home. This was by far the most fun section of the run. Most worthy of a good lean.

This route is great, although in recent years has seen much more highway patrol presence. Lots of great twisty sections, just don't get stuck behind a car or truck, because there are very few sections to pass (even for the daring).

This is an excellent route. One caution, watch for deer in the early morning and late in the day.
