Wildwood Trail Description

The Wildwood Trail follows a former railroad right-of-way once owned by the St. Paul, Minneapolis and Omaha Railway Company. The trail runs between Woodville and Spring Valley and is open to snowmobilers in winter. Through Woodville the trail is broken into two segments: one runs between E. Boundary Road and River Street; the other picks up again at Main Street near Solum Drive. The gap is easily bridged along Stene Drive and County Road BB.

South of Woodville the trail passes among a mostly rural setting through a nicely wooded corridor.

Wildwood Trail Reviews

Very nice trail for a hot summer day. Very shady and cool. The trail is very well maintained with a smooth gravel surface. Pretty much a straight run through deep woods with not a lot of scenery. While not spectacular, very quiet and pleasant. The ride south from Woodville is slightly more downhill than riding north from the southern trail end. Parking on the south end is non existent except for beside a country road. Plenty of parking in Woodville near the trail head, although not right at trail head.

This is a great off road crushed gravel trail, peaceful and quiet. For directions to the trail we followed what is really the end of the trail and there was no parking except on the side of the road. We road to Woodville which is the main trailhead but still not too much room to park. This was a good training trail as there is rolling hills to break the monotony of the flats. What keeps the review from getting 5 stars was lack of signage and parking. I’ll go back again.

This trail is amazing , very peaceful and shaded even on hot days . Wide enough for me to bring the kids !!! One thing I do Wish is that they was parking at the end of the trail , the end is closer to me so I start there !!

Accordion

I love this trail. I was raised on this trail and recently we took our horse and wagons on this trail. This is an awesome trail!

However, between Woodville and Spring Valley the trail is CLOSED to horses. What a huge loss.

I would be very interested in working to change that and making it a shared trail once again with dates it would be open for horses.
