Minneopa Trail Description

The Minneopa Trail is part of Mankato's catalogue of trails including Red Jacket Trail, the South Route Trail, the North Minnesota River Trail and the nearly 40-mile Skatah Singing Hills State Trail. 

The trail is nestled between the Red Jacket and South Route trails, extending from just outside Williams Nature Center property to a point at Riverfront Drive, just south of Sibley Park. The trail mostly sits in the grassy shoulders of the road (first Minnesota State Route 68, then US Highway 169). Part of the trail ventures into the right-of-way of the neighboring Union Pacific railroad, making this what is known as a rail-with-trail

The trail provides non-motorized access to Land of Memories Park, where there are additional trails as well as athletic fields and picnic facilites and a boat landing on the Minnesota River. At its east endpoint, take Woodland Avenue to reach Sibley Park, which has two miles of walking trails with fitness stations and motivational signage that can connect users to the North Minnesota River Trail. 

Parking and Trail Access

Park at Sibley Park (900 Mound Ave, Mankato, MN 56001) and take Woodland Avenue down to Riverfront Drive where the trail starts. You can also park at the Land of Memories Park (
