Rum River Regional Trail

short but sweet

March, 2021 by billt806

This trail follows the edge of the rum river from just North of Anoka HS to the mouth of the Mississippi River. It is curved with lots of up and down. Note the three Cottenwoods that marked a bend one river around half way. They are reminders of the the old paper mill days.

Great Northern Trail

my go to trail.

March, 2021 by dgp13123_tl

This is my daily ride trail. Only two miles from where I live. Very well maintained. I’ve seen as many as 12 deer during an early morning ride. Love the fact it has now been extended to Zimmerman.

Stower Seven Lakes State Trail

Great in winter!

January, 2021 by maevemcguire

It’s great views of lakes and marshland in Wisconsin. In winter, you can see ice fishers and wildlife in the trees. I recommend using walking poles in the winter for the snow. Highly recommend!

Lake Minnetonka LRT Regional Trail

Grew up on the trail

December, 2020 by oberm053

Well crafted limestone trail with scenic views, parks, shops, restaurants, and small lakes, all along the way. Very beautiful in fall, or really any time of year. This trail system links the suburban communities it surrounds with the greater metropolitan area and goes from Victoria into the Twin Cities.

Great Northern Trail

paved to Zimmerman

November, 2020 by troyesch

The trail is now paved to the compost site in Zimmerman. A very nice and wide trail with great scenery

St. Anthony Falls Heritage Trail

A Beautiful Historic Trail

November, 2020 by bhimrich

I grew up on the Mississippi River. My husband is a historian and loves bridges. We were married in this bridge. Note you do need a permit from the Minneapolis Parks Department.

Dakota Rail Regional Trail

To Hutchinson Some Day?

November, 2020 by johnrobhill

Trail disintegrates just west of Lester Prairie. Hopefully it will be paved (someday) to Hutchinson--and hook up with Luce Line Trail. Trail in great condition and empty on a beautiful fall day.

Luce Line Trail

around Hutchinson

October, 2020 by lorenjohnson101st

Good biking with parks and a nice military memorial by the trail. Did 20 miles in this area. The trees were at their peak colors, beautiful.

Mississippi River Regional Trail (Dakota County)

Fabulous Trail

October, 2020 by mikejward80

I have done both sections of the trail several times. For the So. St. Paul to Pine Bend Trail End I like to start at Simon's Ravine because their are usually parking spots available. This section is a good day's ride for me and it is very interesting because of the mix of river and woods trails with fun street trails.

For the Hastings section I like to start at the Lower Spring Lake Park Reserve Trailhead. It is a huge parking lot and it is where the Hastings section starts. It is about 4 miles of beautiful trail and it runs through Schaar's Bluff. Then it is around 7 miles from there to Hastings. It is a good mix of open country, woods, and street trails. I love where the trail drops through a hillside settlement on to a levee going across the Mississippi then along the locks into the city. There are many great places to eat and drink close to the trail.

This is a beautiful trail and I can't wait for the Pine Bend section to be connected to the Lower Spring Lake Park section. That would make it world class!
