River Bend Trail Description

Although short, the River Bend Trail provides access to a recreational gem, the River Bend Nature Center, a 750-acre park with woodlands, prairie, rivers, and ponds. Along the way, the paved trail runs through neighborhoods and nicely shaded areas. For further exploring, you can hop on the Straight River Trail, an 8-mile journey through Fairbault that connects several parks.

Parking and Trail Access

Parking can be found at the River Bend Nature Center (1000 Rustad Road).
