We're coming up for the Fall MNGCA event in a couple weeks and are looking to do some bicycling to find some caches after the event. I grew up in that general area and I know there are some great biking trails around, but was surprised to find that the trails I used to frequent aren't necessarily populated with very many if any caches.

Could anyone recommend a nice family/ somewhat kid-friendly bike trail of caches in the NW metro area? Hopefully somewhere around 5-10 miles total whether a loop or out and back.

Thanks for the suggestions, and hope to see y'all in a couple weeks.

You can do that in a half hour and circle around. There also very easy KB puzzle on the bike route. Have fun.

Back in June I was up there working in Anoka-Ramsey area and Yellowdogs have some nice ones that you can ride along on bike paths/sidewalks.

That cache will get you into the center of them.

There's a great bike trail through Minnetonka that I found back in 2006.

Starts at GCQ5D6 and ends at GCQDY6. Some of the caches listed on the maps may have been archived or there may be new caches since then but it's a great trail.

Thatís a good one too. You may need a reach tool on a couple of them if you are of average height as I am. Wink
