Bike paths the whole way once you get off neighborhood streets in NE. Pretty quiet this morning. Some hills esp in and out of Columbia park so definitely a workout but still mostly flat.

First to Review

Loved the trail! Lots of tree cover, we walked from the golf course down to Lake Wirth and it was pretty easy. There was a little confusion about the system they use, but we eventually figured it out. To clarify some other reviews, there are parking lots (closer to the Wildflower Gardens) that you pay to use, but most are free. Very shady and wooded, but humid (as to be expected in MN).
