Bike The Sakatah Singing Hills State Trial
"A variety of wildflowers and animals, including deer, mink, rabbit, songbirds, hawks and owls, can be seen (and sometimes heard) along the trail. This former railroad bed was converted to a trail by the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources, creating a level, easygoing bike route with lots of shade and occasional stretches of sunny, open farmland.
It's easy to plan short or long rides along stretches of the trail. The trail passes through the villages of Madison Lake, Elysian, Waterville and Morristown. Along Sakatah Lake, cyclists pass through the Sakatah Lake State Park for a 3-mile stretch where a dense tree canopy cools the ride. The park offers a bicycling campground, picnic grounds, swimming and hiking trails. Parking and access to the Sakatah Singing Hills State Trail is available at all of the towns along the route."
Things to do
Nestled between 4 lakes, the picturesque town of Elysian offers a small-town atmosphere and attractions for visitors who want an escape from the hustle of everyday life. Visitors can enjoy camping, boating, fishing, golfing, horseback riding, canoeing, local dining or just relaxing on a beach.
"Elysian is a small town in southern Minnesota ...you might expect Elysian to be a sleepy town with few real attractions. On the contrary, the town offers visitors a number of opportunities for recreation, especially out-of-doors.
"Named for the mythical Elysian Fields, this southern Minnesota city remains true to its namesake ...a quiet, peaceful place with gently rolling hills and fields. Surrounded by lakes, Elysian is a summer city for many."
"From Mankato to Faribault, in southern Minnesota, the 39-mile paved Sakatah Singing Hills State Trail leads through small towns and along farmland, woods, wetlands, and a dozen lakes.."
