The St. Paul Grand Round is a 26-mile route encircling Minnesota's capital. The loop was designed by Horace Cleveland, the landscape architect who also designed the Grand Rounds in neighboring Minneapolis. The project was envisioned in the late 1800s to link the city's parks and construction began in the 1920s along the Mississippi River Boulevard.
The south side of the route follows the Mississippi River on a multi-use trail from Indian Mound Park to the western border of the city. Part of this route overlaps the Samuel H. Morgan Regional Trail. The north side follows parkways and includes on-street routes.

Parking can be found in many of the parks that the trail connects, including:
