Scenery

On this route, you'll see what the heart of the lakes area of Minnesota is all about. Winding turning roads on State highway 84 from Pine River to Longville keeps you on your toes and also gives you many lakes to look at along the way. As you travel along State Highway 84, you'll pass many lakes and trees everywhere. A couple of good watering holes along the way in Emily, and along state highway 6 at the Bridge Tavern. Take a second to stop at the Crosby Mine Pits for an excellent photo opportunity with amazing water clarity and impressive scenery.

Drive Enjoyment

Many twists and turns along the route from pine River to Longville. Emily to Crosby is flat and straight for the most part but make sure to stop at the Bridge Tavern for some refreshments.

Tourism Opportunities

Crosby Mine pits, Bridge Tavern and any one of the lakes along the way are excellent photo opportunities.

Original member poster has it right, this is an exceptionally beautiful ride with just the right mix of sweepers, twisties, and country road riding. One change I would make is it start the ride just east of Pine River at the Co Rd 1 and 84 intersection. This cuts off about a dozen or more miles on Hwy 371 and puts you into the Minnesota woods along 84 instead. Nothing to see on the highway except highway.

I take Hwy 84 right out of Pine River instead of using Hwy 371 north of Pine River. Highway 84 is also the main street in downtown Pine River. It leads you up to Longville along a winding, scenic ride past Lake Ada, Ponto Lake and others. Twenty-four miles from Pine River to Longville on this route. Sharp corners, curves and some straight-aways present. Narrow to no shoulders, so take care. Busy on weekends! Plenty of eateries, saloons along the way starting in Pine River.

This area is basically my back yard. There are several modifications you can take from this route depending on how long you want to ride that day. Always beautiful scenery, nice curvy roads. One of my favorite routes.
