I took this trail round-trip from Saint Paul to Stillwater with my husband and a friend, and it was one of our all-time favorite bike trips. Although the trail parallels Highway 36, there are woods that separate you from the highway, making you feel like...More

I usually access this trail by biking up from Stillwater and into the northern part of the Cities. Really nice and well-maintained. Thankful this bike trail exists in the Metro!

One of the best bike trails in the Twin Cities. Head out to Stillwater, or take a smaller round trip - not too hilly and the scenery is amazing.!

I am so thankful that our State puts a priority on bike trails. This one is one of the best in the twin cities. The nice thing is that you are in the country but not far from nice restaurants an sites to explore.
