Rush Creek Regional Trail (MN)

Nice trail

May, 2020 by tgreen55402

Mostly flat and asphalt is in great condition! Several road crossings but mainly residential streets. Easy access to Elm Creek Park Reserve, with even more trails. Coon Rapids Dam at the east end is a nice trailhead or turnaround.

Nine Mile Creek Regional Trail

a little rough

May, 2020 by rianthibeau

I started at Bredesen in Edina and there was a lot of rough terrain for Rollarblading. I’m sure it would have been smoother if I started in a different location. Lots of hills.

trail closed

May, 2020 by angelalesperance

I made it from Valley Park in Hopkins maybe 5 minutes and the trail was closed. Nice smooth surface for rollerblading & it’s really pretty going around the park. Bummed I didn’t get to go very far.

Great Northern Trail

Family Trail

May, 2020 by 23holland

This is a beautiful and well-kept paved path for easy and enjoyable biking. Off-street parking available with a potty. The first stretch includes walkers, families with dogs and biking with the kids, then it turns pretty quiet. The trail is absolutely beautiful through birch, frog ponds, and a fun tunnel. This is on the edge of the City of Elk River so when you are done it is just a mile or two to the nearest DQ.

Lake Wobegon Trail

I’m biased btw

April, 2020 by urness.andrew

Went to St. John’s University so this review 100% biased... but for great reasons! The views at this unique spot are absolutely incredible... over 60 miles of beauty. If you’re able to make it all the way to the end, you won’t be disappointed! Top 5 trails over 18+ miles. 1) Root River Trail 2) Paul Bunyan Trail 3) Cannon Valley Trail 4) Lake Wobagon

Minnesota Valley State Trail

Very muddy

April, 2020 by heathertamistewart

The flooding from the past few years has definitely affected the enjoyment and access to this trail. We went in two different directions today. The paved portion was ‘okay’ but still slick with mud in spots and overrun with water in others. The non paved section was a cross country adventure. We finally gave up after a few miles of sand and mud. I think it will be hard for this trail to be consistently maintained given its proximity to the river.

Minnesota Valley State Trail

April, 2020 by kristinal.bushman

I don’t know if the whole Trail is bad, but the start of it by valleyfair was touch and go of mud and we couldn’t continue biking very far at all.

Elm Creek Park Reserve Trails

Best In Class - Winter & Summer

April, 2020 by mca8969

Well maintained trails winter and summer. Hilly, but manageable. Great scenery and wildlife. Something for everyone!

St. Cloud River Walk

St Cloud Riverwalk

March, 2020 by natekeller21

Beautiful addition to the St Cloud area. Pretty views of the river and portions of bridge extend out into river giving users a unique feel. Train bridge goes over the trail which is also unique. History placards help tell the story of the area. Money well spent for St Cloud!

Lake Wobegon Trail

Now goes into St. Cloud

December, 2019 by timbee205

Not much to add to all the positive comments, except that it now goes into St. Cloud from St. Joseph. This short segment goes by an industrial/warehouse area, over a river bridge and then ends in an athletic field, across from a Kwik Trip.

The last time on it in Sept '19 there were a few new smooth sections but there are still way too many "washboard" sections. Upgrades are in order.
