The Mississippi River Trail

Zoie Clift
10 states. 1 River. The
Mississippi River Trail (MRT) is a bicycling route that travels from the
headwaters of the Mississippi River at Lake Itasca, Minnesota to the Delta at
the Gulf of Mexico in Louisiana. It is a 3,000-mile system of bicycle-friendly
roads and multi-use pathways that connects 10 states, the cities of
Minneapolis, St. Louis, Memphis and New Orleans, and hundreds of smaller towns
along the way. The Arkansas section of the trail currently traverses Delta
country and more routes are being planned. Bob Robinson recently wrote a
guidebook for the trail that provides route information broken into 100 mile
segments. For more details on the trail and the guidebook visit
