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.

It's a nice trail to get out and about! Not much elevation change and the trail is paved (which I like), it's a nice beginner trail! I've cross country skied the trails as well, and it's beautiful scenery in the winter. Be sure to dress for the elements!!!

Really easy to ride on. Can be a little difficult with the wind.

Great paved trail that winds along the river. No worries of cars or other motorized vehicles, except for a few crossings. Kids have freedom to explore and ride. Quiet and very enjoyable. Fun place to Geocache too!

Great views and access to the Mighty Red River of the North. I enjoy the path for the access it gives to serenity close to GF/EGF. The Greenway is great for walks, bike rides, access to unlimited fishing spots, runs, picnic spots, hammock chill time and many more things I'm sure I missed. Within the last few years, there has been a company that rents out canoes/kayaks out of the Lincoln Park boat landing parking lot so hit that up to really enjoy the river. Frolfing at Lincoln Park is good as well.

NOT A TRAIL!!!! This is a wide sidewalk through the center of town and crowded with people. You’ll be lucky if you get a little dirt on your shoes.

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.
