Nokomis-Minnesota River Regional Trail contributes 7 miles to the Twin Cities’ extensive network of regional trails. The paved path is 10-foot wide, providing room for a variety of trail users including bicyclists, joggers, walkers and inline skaters. It’s a north-south trail across three communities: Minneapolis, Richfield and Bloomington. As it travels south, it goes through residential neighborhoods, into parks and near retail and entertainment destinations including the famous Mall of America in Bloomington, and the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport. It also links with other trails in the system: at its north end it joins the Grand Rounds Scenic Byway, a 50-mile network of trails. In Richfield, it connects to the Nine Mile Creek Regional Trail. While most crossings are at grade, there are two bridges, one over State Route 62 and the other spanning I-494.
You could choose to park at one of the parks along the trail:
While a nice, casual and bikable trail, it is all along streets. Sometimes busy crossroads.The end - down, down, down to the river - is awesome.
