County bicycle maps

There are 125 county maps with some counties split into more than one sheet. Click on a county name to see trails, road conditions and more.

The maps are in PDF format and you can print them out on 8.5x11 or 11x17 paper to take along to help navigate on your trip. MnDOT does not provide printed versions of the county maps.

For metro areas, please also reference local bicycle maps as they have the most current and detailed local roadway data.

Because this is the first effort to show data at the county scale, there are some gaps, and we will continue to work with the counties to improve the data and layout of these maps with future versions. We also welcome your comments on how to improve the maps. Submit feedback or suggested changes by emailing bicyclemap.dot@state.mn.us.
