Only went about a mile and back from the trail head. All paved trails, no view of/access to water, very flat. Could be fun for bikes, but might be short. was a boring walk, would not hike again.

Most of it is paved and while its nice, the scenery isn't great. Better for biking than for hiking.

AllTrails - Please make a correction to your trail information. NO BIKING going north from County Hwy 101 due to sensitive bird nests. See the official US FWS trail map for more information, using the following link: https://www.fws.gov/uploadedFiles/Wilkie%20Trail%20Map.pdf Better to avoid this trail in the fall due to rifle hunting.

Fun trail right along the Minnesota river. The trail can be wet depending on the level of the river.

First time hiking/walking the trail. Loud because of HWY 169- which was a negative. Pretty views of the rivers. Wish there was more unpaved trails. May have seen some grass trails as I was pulling out of the parking lot. Will maybe bring a bike or rollerblades next time. Most likely will be back to explore and see more.

This trail is a nice little in and out. There are lots of birds and small animals along the way, also be as you get closer to the river there are some hawks.
