Local Playground, Continental River In the middle of a bustling urban setting, this 72 mile river park offers quiet stretches for fishing, boating and canoeing. Other spots are excellent for birdwatching, bicycling and hiking. And there are plenty of visitor centers that highlight the history and science of the Mississippi River. If you are interested in the Mississippi, this is a great place to start. Operating hours may vary according to season and special event schedules. Please call 651-293-0200 for more information.
Jeff L. on Luce Line Regional Trail
Trail is nice but closed for construction about a mile in.
This is a great location with a fair amount of elevation and a great view overlooking the Minnesota River valley. It takes about 45 minutes to make a circuit around. I like to hike the trail in one direction, then reverse direction and go the opposite way for a nice 1 1/2 outing. There are a few extra trail segments cutting across the main loop if you want to add a bit more time.
