A segment of the Minnesota River Greenway, spanning just shy of 4 miles, opened in June 2017. The paved trail traces the southern bank of the Minnesota River in Burnsville. A good place to begin your journey is Minnesota Riverfront Park at the southern end of the trail as it offers parking and other amenities, including a bicycle repair station. From there, you'll head northeast through a scenic, tree-lined river valley.
This trail section is called the "Black Dog segment" as it parallels Black Dog Road. It's part of a larger effort to develop a 17-mile trail connecting the communities of Burnsville, Eagan, Mendota Heights, Mendota, and Lilydale.
Parking is available at the southern end of the trail in Minnesota Riverfront Park (600 W. Black Dog Road, Burnsville).
