Winter Bicycling on Minnehaha Creek

Posted by Doug Shidell, February 13th, 2021

Minimal snow and good ice made Minnehaha Creek a popular route for fat bikes this winter. The trail is past its peak for the season. Slush in January froze into rutted footprints and even in today’s near zero temps, the sun is warm enough to melt snow and send it down the storm sewers to the creek, creating salty slush in spots.

You can still salvage some good riding by diverting off the creek onto packed single track along the banks of the creek.
