An extensive system of biking/walking trails along the Red River of the North. Offers some beautiful views of the river, dike system, downtown of either city, and the Flood Memorial. Numerous biking trails follow along the river on either side to connect with several area parks that include areas to sled, ice skate, swim (not in the river), and golf. Camping is also available on the Minnesota side.

The Grand Forks Greenway really makes the city more livable. You can spend part of a day biking it, or if hiking is more your thing, there are several unpaved trails to explore a bit closer to the river. All of the trails are entirely within the flood walls, so it's pretty much a 10ish mile long park winding along the river with nice wide trails on either side. Also, it's rarely crowded which makes it perfect for biking.

For being at the heart of the city, this little gem offers a subtle protection from the bustling industry of the area.

The trail is paved and perfect for road biking/walking. Offers some great views of the Red River. Since Grand Forks/EGF has put together such an extensive bike path system I have to give it a 4 star. Despite the lack of "outdoor" stuff to do, the path offers so much in terms of getting out and seeing what the Red River Valley has to offer.
