Tour the Prairie
FROM BICYCLE TRAILS TO MOUNTAIN BIKING TO WATERFALLS & PARKS
The Luverne Loop offers 7.4 miles of trail around the outskirts of the city. By linking to the Blue Mounds Trail, the Loop provides residents and visitors of all ages with a safe, natural place for healthy recreation and transportation that connects areas of interest throughout Luverne and Rock County.
Trail users can access the Loop by parking at the Trailhead or at other public parking places along the route. The trailhead is located at 601 E. Main Street. Parking, public restrooms, water, Wi-Fi, and a bike fix-it station are available at the trailhead. The Loop is a fantastic way for residents and visitors to experience hidden gems within the community. Starting at the trailhead, users can go counter-clockwise around the Loop by heading north on the Blue Mounds Trail past the Luverne Aquatics and Fitness Center and turning west on 131st Street. The section of existing 5-ft wide sidewalk along 131st St. will be replaced with 10-ft wide trail this summer. Heading south on Hwy 75, users have the option to take the spur to the fishing pier at Veterans Pond, or cross Hwy 75 and continue on the Loop.
