Bassett Creek Regional Trail Description

The Bassett Creek Regional Trail is envisioned as an important connector between French Regional Park and Theodore Wirth Regional Park through the cities of Plymouth, New Hope, Crystal and Golden Valley. When complete, the trail will be a total of 7 miles, linking to a variety of amenities including schools, businesses, local parks and the Medicine Lake Regional Trail. The route heads east from the French Regional Park, traveling along 36th Avenue to Boone Avenue. At Boone, it cuts through Northwood Park before reemerging at 36th Avenue. The trail turns south to 32nd Avenue and continues until it meets State Route 100 in Golden Valley.  At present, there remains a gap in the trail separating it from its final destination: the trail ends on the east side of SR 100.

Parking and Trail Access

The Clifton E. French Regional Park (12605 Rockford Road, Plymouth) is a popular destination within the St. Paul /Minneapolis metro area. It has activities and amenities that visitors can take advantage of year-round. From I-494, take Rockford Road (County Road 9) east for 1 mile. From US 169, take CR 9 west 2 miles to the main park entrance. There is plenty of parking to be found. Follow the signage to the children’s play area, where the parking is closest to 36th Avenue.
