Very scenic and fun trail!
Loveliest in Baker Regional Park!
Walked in the Mound part of the trail!
Wonderful scenery! Plenty of parking on the Wisconsin side with clean bathrooms.
Great trail to bike or walk!
Except for by the university, the view goes from dense scrub brush and scraggly flood plain trees, to wooded suburbs, finishing up by skirting a nondescript busy highway. Don't bother if you aren't a local.
Very nice path, bridges through wetlands. Lots of wildflowers. Leads to a nice beach and great playground.
If you start from the Stillwater end, this is the perfect challenging ride. The grade is all uphill on the way to the Gateway. My husband pulled the two littles in the Burley, and I kept pace with our six year old. There is a park at the 3 mile point, which is great for a tired kiddo. Once you hit the Gateway, when everyone is tired, it’s really nice to have the return ride all downhill. The bluffs and ravines are beautiful. The sound of running water accompanies you through the first part of the ride, if you don’t have head phones. I am looking forward to doing it at least once more this year, with the fall leaves and the Burkey on my tail this time.
Really enjoy this trail, but it needs clear signage when in the area between the dog park and county road I.
Rode start to finish on our tandem. It is all asphalt, no gravel at all. Great burgers and fries at Longhorns in Lester Prairie. They let us fill our Camelback with ice and water before we left. Highly recommend!
Minnesota boat launch and Cedar trailhead is at the other side of trail as well.
