The upper access for the trail is at Moir Park, 104th & Morgan in Bloomington: that is very near to Old Shakapee Road and Penn Ave. The folks in the neighborhoods surrounding the trail know of other accesses. Access is also possible from the MRW trail.

when I went there were a ton of bikers that will run you over. I was hiking with the dogs and won't go back.

Too bikers: people on foot always have the right away.

We walked 8 of the 16 miles. The trail has variety including partly narrow dirt path through trees to wide gravel path near the Minneaota River. The change in scenery and terrain keeps it interesting.

I went on this hike on a very damp day. it was very secluded and beautiful. You really don't feel like you are surrounded by the twin cities metropolis. I recommend this trail for trail running and nature lovers.

Don't forget some good mosquito spray! They are rough through the wooded areas as of June 17, 2017!
Lots of birds , a couple snakes and a whitetail deer were all seen on the 8 mile hike. Very nice trail for being just outside of downtown minneapolis. I wish there was some way to make this trail into a loop as it sucks to turn around and re-see the trail you already saw. Lots of trees to keep the sun off of you.
