Letter: Cannon Valley Trail helps put Cannon Falls on map

As a frequent trail user and business owner, I encourage the city of Cannon Falls and Goodhue County to offer increased support to the Cannon Valley Trail over the next 10 years to complete necessary improvements and repairs identified in the new strategic plan.

At Ferndale Market, many customers stop in before or after a ride on the Cannon Valley Trail. Along with visiting our market, they enjoy our other shops and restaurants while in Cannon Falls. These trail-users are an important economic driver for our community, and most towns our size would envy our out-of-town traffic.

When we are out sampling Ferndale products around the state, the Cannon Valley Trail is consistently one of the top conversation points people identify with the Cannon Falls area. It's always mentioned in a positive light, and puts Cannon Falls on the map.

With 100,000 annual visitors, the trail benefits our community in many ways.

Thank you for your support in maintaining the asset we have in the Cannon Valley Trail. I'll see you on the trail!
