Pretty trail, pretty flat. Current conditions are a bit swampy and muddy (bikers beware) and the cement bridge at mile 1.8 is currently closed (due to flooding perhaps), but many were crossing anyways.

Looks to be a pretty nice trail, but as of today (6/28) the trail is completely submerged under at least a foot of water.

probably the best and one of the busiest now trails in the Twin Cities if you go here after work on a weekday there's a lot of bikers the path is fairly new in great shape and has spectacular views of the Mississippi River in St Paul at sunset

I use this trail all the time. My family & I love how peaceful it is. The scenery is great. And we frequently see wildlife near the trail.

Very flat trail but still sorta fun. Lots of animals and just a nice relaxed ride.
