Minnesota River Greenway

Great for rollerblading!

August, 2018 by karissaroden

So excited to have found a smooth trail!! Asphalt is in great condition, perfect for rollerblading. It only gets a bit rocky around the Xcel Energy plant. Beautiful scenery and very secluded. River overlook and benches along the way, too! -KR

Willard Munger State Trail (Hinckley-Duluth)

Carlton to Duluth is super

August, 2018 by normanbowers

Carlton to Duluth has been repaved and is one of the smoothest trails I have encountered. Leaving Duluth and heading up hill toward Carlton there is only one road crossing in 9 miles so this is a great trail for families and serious riders. No water or restrooms.

Kenilworth Trail

My Favorite Little Trail

August, 2018 by bbjohnson555_tl

This is a beautiful, short trail that links to some longer trails in the area. If you can, I recommend passing through it, especially in the Fall! Lots of tree cover, and a cool old train tack that still gets some use. It really takes you out of the city for a couple miles.

Brown's Creek State Trail

A Great Addition to the northern metro trails in the Twin Cities

July, 2018 by mikaspaso

We've ridden this trail at least once a year and it's a local favorite. It connects with the Gateway Trail and follows the creek down to Stillwater. Its popular with the locals and well as tourists. There's no parking in the western start of the trail, so I would recommend parking at the Pine Point trailhead (tons of parking, water and bathrooms). There is a tiny parking lot off of Highway 96, but it's almost always full on weekends, even early in the morning.

If you start at the western trailhead off of the Gateway, the trip to Stillwater is downhill, but you really don't notice it too much, even the trip back is pleasant. There are a few places where you traverse a local golf course but the majority of the trail is through some lovely wooded areas. I've almost ridden off into the trees because I've been gawking at the beautiful scenery!

You can continue to explore Stillwater at the trail's end, or head north to William O'Brien State Park and the lovely river towns of Marine on St. Croix and Copas. It's a great little trail!

Mississippi River Regional Trail (Dakota County)

Fun Trail Ride - Some Ups and Downs

July, 2018 by ldsbjensen

We started at the Petro Truck stop just off of Hwy 52 and 117th Street. Upon finishing our ride, we determined that there is a nice trailhead, appears to be just north of this truck stop. We used the truck stop and headed out on the trail just out of the south end of the parking lot.

Overall the trail was in great condition and well marked. The only spot that we did not see any marking was at the intersection of Cahill and Concord Boulevard. We continued north and went up into the neighborhoods of Inver Grove Heights - also a nice continuance of the trail. One of the riders in our party did head "east" along Concord down to the Swing Bridge Park. This was also a great section of trail, challenge is that you are going down hill to the river, so the return means that is UP hill from the river. Manageable but a good climb.

I will be back again to ride further into St Paul via the trail!

Cedar Lake LRT Regional Trail

Another Poorly Maintained Trail

July, 2018 by breebertz

Surprised by the rave reviews on here. I rode this trail recently for the first time in several years. Like many of our Twin Cities trail, it is amazing in potential and horrible in reality. These trails are worthless if not maintained correctly. I will not ride this trail again with my road bike until it is patched or resurfaced. Probably great for mountain bikes, but a little tender loving care would make it amazing for everyone.

Willard Munger State Trail (Hinckley-Duluth)

Oh happy day!

July, 2018 by aparrott58

Rode from Carlton to duluth. All downhill. Beautiful views, great scenery, lots of mature trees, all paved. Just a lot of fun. Would do the trail again. Only downfall? A few more signs, especially when nearing the big town...no real trailhead and no sign stating you were at the end of the trail.

Gandy Dancer Trail - Southern Section

Hot day, not so hot trail.

June, 2018 by aparrott58

Rode from Webster to halfway to danbury, uphill... No wind, high temps, high humidity. Lots of black flies. Couldn't stop for bugs would have a field day enjoying my sweat. Bailed on a side road. Started again at Luck and hoping to have better downhill luck, went to Milltown. Much better as it was not uphill, but still had limited shade. Sag wagon/re-supply husband couldn't find TH asked locals "where is the gandy dancer bike trail head" and no-one knew. Probably should have asked where the snowmobile trail was...maybe in better conditions would I try again. Or use my time on others trails.

Willard Munger State Trail (Hinckley-Duluth)

at Jay Cooke park

June, 2018 by dadandthegang

I parked at Cooke park HQ and rode the spur to the main trail. I went south about 4 miles to where the trail closed then north of the spur about 6 miles (21 round trip). Pavement is mostly good with some sections freshly paved and most of it having some patches. Only a few sections had rough spots, but still very rideable. Being an old railroad track the slopes are gentle.

Lake Phalen Trail

Nice, Smooth Trail Ride

June, 2018 by jackierlandin

This was a very nice trail to bike on. It’s separated most of the way from the walking trail which is nice as I found a lot of people running/walking which would have crowded the trail if it was combined all the way around. There are plenty of different parking places located around the lake for easy access to the trail. Shading around the lake so you aren’t always riding in the sun.
