Either way, when you get in Hastings, you want to take 316 south, it is a bit shorter than 61. It comes out about 5 miles closer to Red Wing than 61.

I'm only seeing a Gross Weight Restriction on Hwy 61 in a few spots.. Don't think we need to worry about that :)

Joe, I left a comment on your profile page. Let's maybe figure this out "offline", then post with the final decision. :)

Hwy 61 was being repaired last time I went through there, it might be OK now. You could head down 52 to Hampton, exit on 240th which turns into 61, then straight into Red Wing..

Elizabeth, do you want to meet somewhere in Newport? Looks like we'd both be driving though there... ?

Let me know

Up to the group. We can make a bunch of stops, or drive straight through. Plenty of scenic views along the river, Wabasha has an eagle center where you can do some watching of eagles along their natural habitat, lots of bluffs and stuff to do in Red Wing.

Oops... also, SmartJoeMN, I'll be coming down from the St. Louis Park area, so if you'd like to pick a place to meet--say on the east side of St. Paul somewhere?--I'd be happy to join you...

Hey all! This'll be my first "ride"... will we have time to stop and do any hiking or anything (or take pictures)? Or is that not how this works?
