This is a great ride if you are looking to relax and take it easy. I live about 10 mins from this ride and I find myself destressing around the lake quite a bit. You will see multi million dollar mansions and have great views of Lake Minnetonka.

Best traveled early on a Sunday morning. Heavy traffic on most other days of the week. Excellent scenery and some nice, twisty sections. Good for low-speed cruising.

Nice twisties, moderate speed. See nice lake homes and boats. The lake has many bays and channels. Plenty of places to stop for food and drink. Lord Fletchers Old Lake Lodge is a great place for weekend people watching on a waterfront channel between parts of lake Minnetonka. Good food and bar.
