Great hike today with my sister and daughter. Perfect conditions: dry, cool sunshine with a breeze. Great views of Superior as well as Bean and Bear Lakes. Very enjoyable hike, will do it again! Would love to do it in the fall when the hardwoods are at their prime.

on Cannon Valley Trail

Great trail from Cannon Falls to Red Wing! Many spots on the trail you can see the river and the surrounding bluffs. Had some open areas with lots of wild flowers to enjoy also. We even had a deer cross the trail right in front of us!! And there were many other birds and wildlife that was present too

Very nice trail for biking! Beautiful scenery, lots of trees and some open spots to view the surrounding country side. Real easy trail.

Some steep terrain but mostly moderate. Great views of Lake Superior at multiple points towards the beginning. Even better views on the scenic overlook spur, you can see Isle Royale on a clear day. The falls themselves are a good spot to stop for lunch, keep your eye out for boundary markers on the rock out croppings. The sign at the beginning of the trail advises against going in the water due to leeches and giardia which was unfortunate.

The trail is much longer than stated and is not accurate to the map online. The trail is around 6 miles long due to modifications to the trail.

part of the trails are not paved.

Great trail! We brought our dog and she loved it. Fairly shaded with tree cover. Beautiful scenic areas. Highly recommend

A nice and scenic quick loop. Good for after work hike/run.

Usually clean and well-maintained. Watch out for the d*** Segways.

This isn’t really a trail. It follows, sort of, the frisbee golf course. Don’t get me wrong, if you are there to play frisbee golf it is a quite beautiful course. If you are there to swim, really nice too. It is just this hike that isn’t really a hike that I am rating 1 Star.

5 star as long as the water isn't high.

My favorite is early spring when falls are mostly still frozen to late spring with lots of wildflowers. muddy in spring past the falls but great for kids.

One of the best in the area.

It was okay had some cliffs but mostly flat land

Open today, August 13. It is a flat, shaded trail—nice on a hot day like today. You can add on miles by running from Minnehaha Falls area, Minnehaha Creek, etc.

This trail is nice and smooth. If you want some fun mountain biking, get off the paved path and cycle it out to the overlook on Upper Triangle! Fun trail and great view.

Simple Trail, Paved just a nice walk or Jog around the lake . Can get pretty crowded and parking can get a little ruff. Overall Nice trail!

This trail offers great views of the lake and bay. We hiked in August and overgrown vegetation was on parts of the trail. Bring bug spray!

Nice short hike to the Kabetogama Lake. Connecting with the Blind Ash Bay trail makes for a longer 3.4 mile in and out with great views of the lake and bay.

Very easy walk, mostly paved. I don’t recommend the lake loop, you end up walking alongside busy city streets and in neighborhoods.

Fairly flat terrain with wonderful foliage.....quiet and very peaceful Sunday morning......short but sweet!

Horse trails not hiking trails. Trails damaged to the point of near impassibility. Even trails marked as hikers only were heavily trafficked by horses.

Love this trail! I’ve been coming to Boyd Lodge for 20 years and just now discovered this trail thanks to this app. It was very easy, scenic and will be beautiful to discover again in different seasons.

Plenty of parking on the east side at the end of Lone Pine dr. that serves the popular Fishing Pier. Can get pretty muddy over on the west side if there has been any recent rain.
Very picturesque!

Beautiful scenery. Paved path options. The floating wood path over the water is a little weird at first, but pretty cool.

Note that the garden has limited hours and does not open until 7:30 AM. The gate was unlocked, but I guess I play by the rules. The trail itself is wonderful. Signage not so much. Kind of easy to get turned around. Lots more trails outside the actual garden.

You can run, walk, or even road bike the lake walk. Currently it's under construction due to a severe storm this past year that tore it apart so a small piece of it is blocked off but you can still get through! Just have to share the way with bicyclists. I've spent my whole life on this lake walk enjoying it and it never gets old.

gorgeous hike.

nice walk through old growth. one warning. we went on a Thursday in August - late morning - and when we got back the parking lot was full. Since the quiet is one of the big attractions, go early or late to avoid crowds.
