Lake Phalen Trail Description

Lake Phalen Trail offers a 3-mile paved loop around a popular lake in St. Paul. The tree-dotted pathway offers views of the lake on one side and pleasant neighborhoods on the other. It is nestled within Phalen Regional Park, which provides parking, restrooms, picnic shelters, a beach, and fishing pier.

At its northern end, the trail connects to the Gateway State Trail and, at its southern end, to the Bruce Vento Trail.

Parking and Trail Access

There are several parking lots available in Phalen Regional Park (1600 Phalen Drive). From downtown St. Paul: Take 35E north to Exit 110A for Wheelock Parkway/Larpenteur Avenue. Turn right on Wheelock Parkway and follow it about two miles east to Phalen Drive. Turn left on Phalen and travel north less than 500 feet to one of the park's parking lots. If it happens to be full, you can continue up Phalen Drive to reach the other parking lots.
