Highway 60 Detour to 63

Minnesota

Distance: 31 miles

Time: 44 minutes

Anyway, I got stuck taking the detour. And it wasn't too bad. It just wasn't as good as 60. I took 60 two years ago and the road was in terrible condition, so the detour sign was a bit of welcome news since they'll be fixing it.

Highway 60 Detour onto Highway 63 is a decent alternative

I was looking forward to taking Highway 60 out of Zumbrota to Wabasha because it’s one of the best motorcycle roads in Minnesota. So I took off from Zumbrota and it is a good warm up to the main event – Zumbro Falls to Wabasha. It is an awesome road. Well, it has incredible curves and hills. It has not been a good road for a while now and hopefully that’s why I encountered the detour in Zumbro Falls. According to MNDOT the road will be resurfaced by the end of June.

The Ride

At Zumbro Falls detours motorists onto Highway 63 to Lake City. It is still a nice ride with a little bit of country scenery and some long, sweeping curves. So not all was lost by taking that route.

The Road

The road is in great condition and Lake City is a good town to stop for gas or a bite to eat.

The Bottom Line

Feel free to take the detour if you get to Zumbro Falls. But otherwise wait for Highway 60 to reopen.
