Minnehaha Trail

beautiful scenery, rough path in parts

May, 2022 by 11prestonmaher

Beautiful scenery around Fort Snelling State Park and Minnehaha Falls to ride along. The path from the base of the old fort to the start of the Falls area is a bit of a rough ride with some bumps from tree routes breaking through

McKnight Road Trail

The path is paved but in need of repair. It is fine for walking and perhaps running. Watch your step. It's a little rough for biking. The trail runs along McKnight Road, as the name implies. It's not very scenic. It can be loud at times.

Minnesota River Bluffs LRT Regional Trail

Still snow and ice

March, 2022 by paul.anderaos

Today was 60 degrees, the warmest day of 2022 so far. Got out there to run. Lots of other people using the trail. Beautiful overlooks! The path into Eden Prairie from Chaska is largely unpaved. Some snow and ice still covers the ground.

Hudson to Lakeland/Afton Trail

Best View of St. Croix River

January, 2022 by mverhulst

I’ve been using this trail across the Saint Croix River for 40 years and every time I have to stop in the middle and look north all the beautiful islands and sailboats moored in front of Hudson. The trail is next to I94 so you’ll have noise but it’s worth it.

Vermillion River Regional Greenway

10 mile loop

November, 2021 by lterhaar31

Agree with other reviewers. This is a poorly marked trail. Put some signs up showing where to go! We started downtown and that didn’t work. Maybe if you start at the falls you will have better luck.

Dakota Rail Regional Trail

Geat Trail, Easy To Bike, Beautiful Ride

October, 2021 by twdfish

We start from Gale Woods Farm and bike West to trail end at Babcock Avenue in Lester Prairie, where trail becomes ATV trail. Tried biking that unpaved part but it is full of the ballast rock from former railroad which made for bad ride. Trail section in Carver County has some bad pavement sections, but otherwise a smooth and flat trail. Near Lake Waconia a family has created a fantastic trail stop on their hobby farm with playground type equipment for the kids, animals to pet and feed, and benches to relax on. The best part is they have a refrigerator and freezer where you can buy a cold bottled water, popsicles, or Schwans ice cream bars for 50 cents to $1.00. We always stop to buy ice cream, pet the goats, cats, and miniature horses. Bring some nickles and you can buy corn to feed the animals. Stop in one of the towns along the trail to eat - we have a favorite in New Germany that has an outdoor patio and great pizza.

Minnehaha Trail

very bumpy

October, 2021 by bruceclaire

Would be great for biking or running, scary at many pets for rollerblading

Bruce Vento Regional Trail

vento trail to nowhere

October, 2021 by mikrosoftsuksdabig1

straight and wide. it ends up by kwik trip on the north end which is good and on us 61 which sucks. other reviews say the trail is smooth. it is not. st paul trails are generally poorly cared for. the cracks are occasionally filled with tar but not filler so the bumps remain. contacting the city is worthless. they simply reply that your email has been forwarded to the responsible department.

Hardwood Creek Regional Trail

09.25.21

September, 2021 by tomlinn001

The trail path is in excellent condition, no bumps or potholes. The terrain is level, the path is straight. A nice trail to just ride and enjoy being outside and riding.

Great Northern Trail

September, 2021 by sondaleebennett

September, 2021 by tgreen55402
