Richard T Anderson Conservation Area Overlook Trail is a 1.8 mile moderately trafficked loop trail located near Eden Prairie, Minnesota that features beautiful wild flowers and is rated as moderate. The trail offers a number of activity options and is best used from March until October.
Unpaved woodland trails. Lots of terrain options.
Great little trail to get a little climb (comparatively speaking for the area). There are spring fed streams running throughout that stay open during the winter, and nice views from the upper trail. Most of the people we met were walking their dogs. During the summer it would be a great place to go to picnic, as there are several tables along the way. The park is currently open daily, not April-October as listed.
This is a great hike and reminds me of a short snippet of a trail you may find on the west coast. It can be nearly vertical at times but it's short lived and it rewarded by great views of the valley or the peaceful beauty of the forest.
Live nearby and hike it several times a year. Great view of the Minnesota River Valley. A number of hills makes for a good workout. Heavily wooded areas help to cool you down in hot weather.
Nice hike through some hills with some scenic views. If you live nearby it's perfect for a quick outdoor workout.
Beautiful, quiet, and quick if you need something that will get your heart pumping for a shorter workout. I ran it, watch out though... I got sniped by a hornet that got me 3 times! If you have allergies bring your epipen or benadryl!
