“The Red Jacket Trail is a multi-use, paved trail constructed on an old railroad line that runs from Mankato to Rapidan.”— Sarah Houle
At Hawthorne Road, the Red Jacket Trail briefly shares the route with the South Route Trail.
Where the Red Jacket Trail meets up with County Road 1 near Red Jacket Valley Park, there is a small park called Red Jacket Trail Park. Here, there is a picnic shelter, primitive restrooms, parking, drinking water, fire rings and grills and a boat launch into the Le Sueur River. This is a great place to rest along the route or to even start the trail at.
