Lake Como Loop Trail is a 1.7 mile heavily trafficked loop trail located near St Paul, Minnesota that features beautiful wild flowers and is good for all skill levels. The trail is primarily used for hiking, walking, fishing, and road biking and is best used from January until January. Dogs are also able to use this trail but must be kept on leash.

This is an easy, but very busy paved loop around Como lake. This is a great place to walk a dog or to jog or bike. Two times around the loop is just over 5k. It can get very busy, as it is in a very busy park. A nice clearly marked divided and paved path loops around the entire lake.
Short but nice jogging area
This "trail" is perfect for running as it is a very busy smoothly paved lakeside park environment. Very good for a casual after dinner stroll kind of thing.
There is a nice flat paved trail around Como Lake (2 times around is just over a 5K). The surrounding area has lots of paved trails as well. Can't find a map of the trails so don't know how many miles total but I have ran for well over an hour and not hit the same trail twice. I run here year round. Can get crowded on nice summer days.
