The Zumbro River Route is named for the Zumbro River which runs through the middle of the route. It spans from the bluffs on the western shore of the Mississippi River to the northern edge of Rochester, MN.  The roads in and around the bluffs near the river are twisty and challenging. Further inland, the route follows the various rivers and streams, including the Zumbro River, to take advantage of as many fun roads as possible.  If you are in the Rochester area and are new to the Driftless Area, this is a great route to start on.
