Exploring Rochester Minnesota’s Trails 01 – Mayowood Trail
I found this trail by mistake, and it looks, smells, and sounds beautiful!
I don't know how I missed this trail. I walk a lot around Bamber Valley Road, up the county road, down Mayowood Road, but it wasn't until the other day that I decided to head toward County Road 22, and stumbled upon Mayowood Trail.
At least three times a week I try to walk a couple miles. It's a great way to sort through the day, to get a little exercise (I walk pretty fast), and to breath fresh, non air-conditioned air.
When I saw the trail, I took it, and assumed it would loop around and come out on Mayowood Road. I have ZERO sense of direction, so by the time I realized it was NOT looping around the way I expected, I was two miles into it. and unsure how much longer it was, so I turned around and walked back. A 4 mile walk? Not bad...tho longer than I intended. The big plus is that it is so beautiful, and so quiet, on the trail. The trees shielded me from the sun, so I was surprisingly comfortable.
All in all, I'm excited to go back and do the whole trail, and then try it on a bike!
