Great Northern Trail

Good Trail

July, 2024 by kyjoe80

Mostly a flat trail from Elk River to Zimmerman. You can make it almost 20 miles if you bike from Elk River to the Smokehouse on Hwy 4 in Zimmerman. Take the outside routes in Woodlands Trails Park and keep going around the Elk River Golf course. Early mornings and later evenings you may see both turkey and deer along the routes. It's an enjoyable easy route and I'm looking forward to the expansion north.

Vermillion River Regional Greenway

A good day

July, 2024 by 8xshdh9bmw

The trail is smooth, with a few challenging inclines. We stopped at the bridge, downtown for lunch at the Confluence hotel. They have a couple yard games out front, and seating for taking in the view. Part of the trail, near the Vermillion entrance is being paved. We’ll go back to complete the loop. .

Stower Seven Lakes State Trail

Well worth the trip!

July, 2024 by larrydabeerman

This is a very well-maintained trail! The trail is crushed limestone and is suitable for all kinds of bikes, skinny road tires may have an issue with one section for about 1/8 of a mile where the trail gets a little rough. The locals are super friendly! The only con is the horsefly that seemed to trail us the whole way We will definitely go back.¿

Indian Mounds Trail

Overgrown, no real views

July, 2024 by qq7tytwc6n

This looked like a once wonderful park and trail. It is not maintained properly - with too much overgrown trees and greenery to see any sights over the bluff.

Midtown Greenway (MN)

Nice Trail connecting one side of the city to the other. Some construction detours but nothing terrible. Lots of bike traffic and walkers/runners. Car traffic was very polite and stopped for people crossing.

Cedar Lake LRT Regional Trail

trail revamped

May, 2024 by karwal55122

Road along the trail today and it was fabulous through Hopkins and ST Louis Park to the start of MSP. Light rail work being completed and the trail is in excellent condition. It was fun to see the light rail stations along the way.

Big Rivers Regional Trail

happy I checked out this trail

May, 2024 by alanad003

Great trail to rollerblade!

Chaska Ravine Trail

It has its moments

April, 2024 by rmtrsws6g4

This could be a really nice trail. I was trying to connect from the Minnesota Valley Trail to the Lake Minnetonka Trail and thought this would be a nicer ride than taking Jonathan Carver Parkway. Unfortunately, signage is non-existent along this trail and it splits at multiple places so staying on the trail requires a lot of stopping and checking your map. On the positive side, it has a lot of potential and the gravel sections were fun.

Coon Creek Regional Trail

our first ride of 2024

March, 2024 by plyman38

We started our ride at the coon Rapids dam and took it all the way up to Bunker Hills Park. It was one of the more interesting rides of our 1100 mile total so far. I like being close to the river, really pretty sights Lots of turns and slight hills, very easy to maneuver. Perfect first season ride with my buddy. I would recommend this trail to anybody and I’m gonna go on it a few more times at least. We will probably go in different seasons just to see the changing forest around us. Really nice trail. Good quality.

Empire Township Trail

not enough scenery

October, 2023 by ebecher220

I tried this one out because it’s close by but it wasn’t that fun. Too much pavement right on a major road, exhaust fumes etc. the parts with nice scenery between the two parks felt tiny

Ayd Mill Road Trail

Nice, short below grade cut through

October, 2023 by rmtrsws6g4

A good short cut, removed from the traffic. Agree with the other review that it lacks connectivity to a larger trail plan.

Big Rivers Regional Trail

Nice overlooks, but lack of connectivity

October, 2023 by rmtrsws6g4

I took this trail on the tail end of a longer ride and enjoyed some of the views overlooking the Minnesota River. However, I was super disappointed with the lack of any continuation of bike dedicated lanes or paths at the Western end of the trail. It would be nice to have some easier way to get to trails further West without having to ride along the shoulder of a highway.
