Nice straight trail crossing the cities. Streets are above the trail so the smoke and noise from the cars won't bother you it is surround by beautiful gardens and nature.

Great trail! Paved with lots of walkers, bikers, and skaters. Fairly well lite. Some parts of the trail are in rough neighborhoods. Great commuter trail as it’s easy to access and travels through many places.

Easy peasy, just avoid the crowds of the weekend and holidays. Great cross town connector.

Hiked the entire thing... there are some really great spots along the way, but the trail also passes through some rough neighborhoods, and I didn't always feel safe walking alone. At one point, I passed by an apartment complex that overlooked the trail, and some teen was throwing random crap off the balcony at bikers.

Utterly wonderful bike trail, walkers and skaters also may join but a bit flat for hiking. Wide, well-maintained blacktop trail. Crosses from just west of the Mississippi in Minneapolis and heads out past Lakes of the Isles, Calhoun and on. We often hook up with the Cedar Lake trail and head back to St. Paul through downtown Minneapolis, but one can continue through Hopkins and out to Lake Minnetonka. Connects with the Grand Rounds trails, so there are many options to extend your ride.
