North Mississippi Regional Park Trail Description

The North Mississippi Regional Park is a fitting place to access and enjoy the Mississippi River. The linear park is walled by the I-94 freeway. The riverine trail follows the west bank of the languid river. It is a great way for users to experience the wildlife-rich Mississippi ecosystem. Walk, run or ride through the prairie and old tree groves and you will find deer, beavers, herons, eagles and more. Though the in-park portion of the trail is relatively short, only about 1.6 miles, there are several other pathways that link up with the park. One external trail extends north through mostly residential neighborhoods, up to the Coon Rapids Dam.  Other trails connect to Shingle Creek and commuter routes downtown.  The park is managed jointly by the Three Rivers Park District (between I-694 and 57th Avenue) and the Minneapolis Parks and Recreation (below 57th Avenue).

 

Parking and Trail Access

Near the south end of the trail, 49th Avenue provides a the main park access point for the North Mississippi Regional Park (5700 Lyndale Ave N., Brooklyn Center). From 49th Avenue, you’ll turn right to park at the Carl Kroening Interpretive Center. Alternatively, you can turn left and take Lyndale Road N. to the official park entrance and parking lot on N. Mississippi Drive.
