After leaving the Slice of Shoreview on Sunday, I continued north towards Taylors Falls. Just north of Stillwater on MN-95 I pulled off at the scenic overlook and, through the power of a 10X optical zoom, got an interesting perspective on Lumberjack Days.
Riding along MN-95 between Stillwater and Taylors Falls, I always pass two signs for Arcola Trail so I assumed it must be a half circle but I've never ridden it. That finally changed.
Here's a map - it's only 4 miles long and it's roughly 2/3 paved and 1/3 gravel.

There is a really cool railroad bridge where the road transitions from paved to gravel.
