Henry County has some great designated bike paths — 96 miles worth of surfaced bike trails, in fact — but don’t forget about the back roads! No mountain bikes are needed to enjoy a challenging trip. When you travel our back roads by bike, you’ll be treated to the most glorious views. The perspective from two wheels looks completely different and is worth checking out. Designated bike trails include the Adventure Cyclist Association Northern Tier Bike Trail, the American Discovery Trail, and Hennepin Canal Parkway State Park. From spring to fall, you’ll witness a spectacular array of colors as you make your way through the many charming towns of Henry County. Explore numerous historic sites, local food scenes and beautiful scenic views along your way.
