MN River Valley NWR, Bloomington Visitor Center

Rivers provide critical habitat for wildlife and a bicycle can transport you to great observation areas throughout the Minnesota Valley NWR. By using designated trails you can minimize your impact on sensitive habitat and reduce your carbon footprint. Discover how you can bike to the refuge, learn which trails are bike-friendly for wildlife observation, and find out how Minnesota Valley links to other trail systems. Judy Geck, Park Ranger.
