Good as it gets

August, 2019 by normanbowers

The section of trail along the Red River is as good as an urban trail can be. All smooth and very safe. The downtown loop is about 10 miles and gets a little confusing where the Red River meets the Red Lake River. The bikeway map on the city website is a lot better than the map on the Greenway website.
If you are staying at one of the hotels near the Alerus Center just take the trails south and east to the south end of the river trail, would be about 25 miles round trip including the river trail.

Surprise Trail

June, 2019 by heochief

My wife and I had to address business in Grand Forks and brought our bicycles with us. We rode this trail and found it absolutely wonderful. The paved trail hugs the Red River and the boarder of Minnesota and North Dakota. The trail is asphalt and in great condition. Many rest areas and tool/air stations. There are many bridges that you can get to East Grand Forks Minnesota and back to Grand Forks North Dakota. The trail offers a ton of food and drink stops as most of the establishment are a short hop off the trail. The trail is also a multi use trail and offers great opportunity for a urban connector trail and way to get around Grand Forks.

GO SIOUX!

May, 2019 by jleyring

Love the Grand Forks Greenway. The Wife and I have spent many hours riding the greenway. People are always friendly and many great places to stop and enjoy the fresh air. The greenway also connects to other bike paths that take you all around Grand Forks and the University. We would ride from our home but there are many places to park and start with many access points to get on the trail. Only downside is winter is long and I am not brave enough to ride in -30. Some people are though.

Recently moved away and we miss the bike paths. We loved how you dont have to cross any major roads. It is very well kept and we always felt very safe riding. We talk often about how much we miss Grand forks and the Greenway is a big part of that.

Agassiz Recreational Trail

Twin Valley

October, 2018 by dascher09

A beautiful trail North of Twin Valley. Tree lined, Shady. Several scenic bridges and rivers. A hidden gem.

Agassiz Recreational Trail

Its nice

October, 2018 by williamlaura

We started in Ulen and walked 5 miles & back. Its along the highway so it’s pretty loud. Its pretty though. Probably wont go to that part again though, hoping the other parts arent right up against the highway.

Uniquely Wonderful

September, 2016 by Klister

This is a uniquely wonderful trail set in the flood plain of the Red River. Instead of a narrow corridor of a rails to trails type path this occupies a wide swath of the river bottoms with a large dyke on the upland side of the path blocking views of town & residential neighborhoods. It's like riding through a lush and beautiful arboretum. The pathways are in excellent shape and mostly deserted in the fall mornings, giving one the feeling of being far far away from civilization.
The town of Grand forks is small and tidy with all the amenities one could want without the traffic congestion & noise of a larger city. I would highly recommend this trail for a bicycle vacation destination.

Agassiz Recreational Trail

Scenic walk

October, 2015 by kfuglie

The walk from Twin Valley to the next paved road is scenic with river crossing and lots of woodland. Worth the trek.

Agassiz Recreational Trail

Fun Multi-Use Trail

April, 2015 by jenkinsqh_tl

I've biked/run much of this trail. The trail head beginning in Ulen north to Twin Valley runs right along highway 32. Some sections are rutted grass cover only, the rest hard packed dirt/gravel paths. Gravel can be small class 5, to larger diameter rock. Low pressure in your tires helps. Not scenic. At the north end of Twin Valley, the trail veers off the highway with a few scenic bridge crossings, and some smaller grades to climb. Some sandy areas that can be hard to run/bike on closer to Fertile. All-in-all, this section is very pretty, and offers plenty of shade, and protection from wind.

Bottineau Trail

Beautiful flowers on Bottineau

June, 2014 by mabowerman

A nice paved trail. Shaded with a bench or two along the way. Saw bunches of yellow lady's slipper, columbine and it looks like there would have have been a ton of bloodroot had I been there earlier (I was there in early June). Lots of wood frogs in the shallow dich, and tons of dragonflies. Lots of poison ivy and mosquiitos though.
