As its name suggests, the trail is nestled in the woods along Sand Creek in Coon Rapids. Thickly shrouded by trees, the trail has a secluded feel despite its urban/ suburban location. The trail stretches between Foley Boulevard and the east edge of Lions Coon Creek Park, crossing under an active railroad in the process. Another spur parallels the railroad for 0.3 miles to 121st Avenue. Across 121st Avenue, the Wilderness Trail continues north alongside the railway line.
The Sand Creek Trail also connects seamlessly to the Coon Creek Regional Trail at Northdale Boulevard just south of Xeon Boulevard. The latter trail winds its way south to Coon Rapids Dam at the Mississippi Gateway Regional Park.
Park at Lions Coon Creek Park (1664 119th Ave NW, Coon Rapids).
