Nine Mile Creek Regional Trail

a little rough

May, 2020 by rianthibeau

I started at Bredesen in Edina and there was a lot of rough terrain for Rollarblading. I’m sure it would have been smoother if I started in a different location. Lots of hills.

Sakatah Singing Hills State Trail

Terrible trail conditions

May, 2020 by katiejronning

My husband and I inline skate and we started in Morristown toward Mankato. The trail to Waterville was nice, but completely covered in sticks and leaves, making it very difficult to get through. It was slow going and pretty treacherous for blading. The scenery was beautiful, but we could hardly look at it because we were too busy avoiding sticks. The trail from Waterville to eagle lake (according to a sign) is hardly a trail. The asphalt is so rough we had to turn around after maybe 0.25 miles. The only part that was decent was from Morristown to Fairbault, but it still had a ton of debris. Overall, Waterville to Fairbault could be great because the trail was very smooth, but it was not well maintained. Don't even bother going past Waterville, unless you've got a mountain bike.

Nine Mile Creek Regional Trail

trail closed

May, 2020 by angelalesperance

I made it from Valley Park in Hopkins maybe 5 minutes and the trail was closed. Nice smooth surface for rollerblading & it’s really pretty going around the park. Bummed I didn’t get to go very far.

Afton to Lakeland Trail

great for rollerblading

May, 2020 by ajdancergirl

Very nice smooth asphalt for rollerblading! Some small hills but nothing too challenging.

Great Northern Trail

Family Trail

May, 2020 by 23holland

This is a beautiful and well-kept paved path for easy and enjoyable biking. Off-street parking available with a potty. The first stretch includes walkers, families with dogs and biking with the kids, then it turns pretty quiet. The trail is absolutely beautiful through birch, frog ponds, and a fun tunnel. This is on the edge of the City of Elk River so when you are done it is just a mile or two to the nearest DQ.

Lake Wobegon Trail

I’m biased btw

April, 2020 by urness.andrew

Went to St. John’s University so this review 100% biased... but for great reasons! The views at this unique spot are absolutely incredible... over 60 miles of beauty. If you’re able to make it all the way to the end, you won’t be disappointed! Top 5 trails over 18+ miles. 1) Root River Trail 2) Paul Bunyan Trail 3) Cannon Valley Trail 4) Lake Wobagon

Willard Munger State Trail (Gateway State Trail)

ehhh it’s alright.

April, 2020 by urness.andrew

If you’re trying to have a nice easy ride, rip it up. However, if you’re trying to get wild and absolutely crush some PR’s, travel up north to the Paul Bunyan trail or south to the Root River trail. They will both offer beautiful views but also are perfect for the quick trail rider. I would say 85% of this trail is enjoyable. With that being said, the unmaintained areas are not worth the headache.

Root River State Trail

best trail in MN

April, 2020 by urness.andrew

If you’re trying to enjoy some beautiful views and grab a buzz absolutely flying down the Trail, give it a go.
