If you are a bicyclist and want either a day trip or a local vacation for a weekend night on bicycles, the Munger Trail from Hinckley, Minnesota to Duluth, MInnesota is a nice paved bicycle trail. It's fairly flat, runs through many small Minnesota towns with quaint little restaurants and there are motels on the northernmost part of the trail. (A Casino and Duluth itself). It's fairly flat, the trail is in good condition south of Carleton, Minnesota.
The trail is about 75 miles long, there is parking in Hinckley (and a few other towns along the route if you don't want to start in Hinckley)

Loved riding the Munger Trail. Mostly paved, some gravel spots waiting for repairs from storm damage. Wooded, rock cliffs, wildlife. Some long easy climbing hills (but what goes up must come down).
Also using the trail were hikers, runners, and birders, Great for the family.

We stayed at the Munger Inn at the trail,head. Long gradual climb, some nice old railway cuts and views of the river valley. Lots of gravel sections which would be hell on skinny tired bikes. Could use better signage. We had no idea how far we were from food water etc. We drove a Long way to ride this trail and it was somewhat disappointing

Biking this trail is a blast. People also walk, run or roller-blade. All sorts of activity on the trail! Many people using it, so I never felt too isolated. The trail is nice, but going to the upper ridge by the Buffalo house is not for the infirm!

Seems like the last time I came up to bike here they had sections that suddenly were gravel! But then I think it was due to some bad weather. Now there are many areas that are waiting to be finished. You can still ride it all but not sure if there is a funding issue or just no hurry to finish? I'd highly suggest doing the ride from Carlton to Duluth.
