Minnesota Motorcycle Roads and Trips

Motorcycle riders will find three great regions for motorcycle roads within the North Star State. The North Central/West region is where Midwest parries meet North Woods, home to Minnesota's (MN) largest lakes, and a paradise for outdoor lovers. The Northeast region, sometimes referred to as Arrowhead, is a home to numerous lakes and rapids bearing rivers, and the shores of magnificent Lake Superior. The Southern region shares it's scenery between the Mississippi River valley and the start of prairie land that dominates the Dakota states to the west.




*Map Key: Why do the routes have different colors? The colors are only different so one route can easily be distinguished from another.
