Nine Mile Creek Regional Trail

Amazing Trail!

April, 2023 by jarad.jackson

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.

Bassett Creek Regional Trail

Urban Connector Trail

April, 2023 by jarad.jackson

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.

Nine Mile Creek Regional Trail

Fantastic Boardwalks

April, 2023 by updowndog

Very enjoyable ride over smooth asphalt with a series of boardwalks (one 3/4 mile long) through wetlands in the Edina segment.


Ayd Mill Road Trail

Ayd Mill Road

April, 2023 by trent.tischer

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.

Beaver Islands Trail

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.

Willard Munger State Trail (Brown's Creek State Trail)

Beautiful challenge

September, 2022 by p9q79b2gzm

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.

Rice Creek North Regional Trail

nice trail

September, 2022 by jzkhj7h7m5

Really enjoy this trail, but it needs clear signage when in the area between the dog park and county road I.
