Straight River Trail Description

The Straight River Trail forms a backwards L as it runs north-south through Faribault and then curves west. The paved trail begins at the Cannon River Reservoir, then travels through woodlands in Two Rivers Park before heading south along the western bank of the Straight River. On the way, it passes through Trail's Edge Park and Straight River Park before ending at Spring Greenway Park.

A connection to the River Bend Trail allows access to the River Bend Nature Center. Trail spurs provide access to residential neighborhoods, businesses and Faribault Middle School.

Parking and Trail Access

Parking can be found along 1st Ave. NE, south of Trail's Edge Park.
