The western half of this trail is amazing as it starts in Hopkins and winds over a maze of boardwalks and through expansive green spaces. The stretch through Edina is also nice in the Centennial Lakes area. As it enters Richfield, it’s more like a city trail as it runs east along busy streets and has frequent crossings. When it enters Bloomington it’s just a sidewalk going past the Mall of America and ending at the MN Valley National Wildlife Refuge.
The majority of this trail is along busy streets and crossing busy intersections, but it does act as a valuable connection from Theodore Wirth Park to Medicine Lake and the regional trails within those parks. It also has a few areas where some detours can be taken through city parks along the way.
The Gandy Dancer Trail is non-motorized from St. Croix Falls to Danbury. No summer ATV/UTV use is permitted south of Danbury. The trail description says they are allowed north of Siren. That is false.
Very enjoyable ride over smooth asphalt with a series of boardwalks (one 3/4 mile long) through wetlands in the Edina segment.
Short newly paved trail runs parallel to the car road. It is awkward accessing it on the North end due to traffic on Selby and no obvious place to go on the South end. I am glad it’s their and it feels like it’s part of a larger plan. I would like to see it connect to the Greenway to the NE and trails along the Mississippi River to the South.
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!
Very nice path, bridges through wetlands. Lots of wildflowers. Leads to a nice beach and great playground.
