Why not take the 2nd half of this great road out of Le Seuer instead of getting back on 169? Catch CR36 to Ottawa, then CR23 into St Peter. Out of St. Peter take CR22 then CR21 south to Mankato. I gave it 4 stars if done this way, only 3 if done on 169 as originally posted (for truckers and commuters). I reserve 5 stars for roads like the Alphabet roads in Buffalo County, WI.

From Carver (just West of Chaska on 212) south on county rd 40 was a nice surprise as I found it by accident. Lots of other riders along the way. From 40 head south on 6, a scenic byway that follows the Minnesota River Valley through hilly winding roads and bluffs to sail through. Nice day trip to Mankato. Really nice !

The road less traveled-hilly farm country, beautiful at dawn and dusk.
