Great views, but parts of the trail were becoming overgrown in July. Great hike with some hills.

fairly easy loop trail. Many intertwined mountain bike and ski trails so know which one you are on.

it was a bit busy for our liking but still a wonderful time

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.

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.

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.

Great trail— the State Park website says it’s open again. Any reports on if this is true?

it's a decent trail, watch out for baby snakes along the way. in the summer, you'll be ganged up by mosquitoes
the worst part is there aren't enough signboards near the parking lots to get you started on a trail, so it's very confusing.
the trails themselves are good and peaceful, well maintained and mildly challenging

We went on Tuesday. Nice walk but suspect too many bikers on WEs

Great trail loop! I have used it for runs before as well

Dogs on Leash is false. More the fault of the app than the Park. They have a Dog Park that dogs are allowed off leash which doesn’t do any good for those who don’t want other dogs running up on theirs. The main hiking trails do not allow dogs at all.

Great challenge, makes for a great day of MTB.

Great trails with lots of diversity. Harriet is quiet and shaded. Calhoun is loud and busy. Lakes of the Isles is open and has a dog park. My favorite is Lake Harriet where I “forget” that I’m in the city.

Very very crowded. Lots of bikers, skaters, runners, walkers, and dogs. Easy access to Lake Harriet and Lake of the Isles trails. Also not far from Greenway trail.

Beautiful trail, the bluffs are fun but i thought the maps weren’t very clear. Dogs ARE okay if they are leashes. Would definitely do this loop again :)!

Very nice trail with a good variety of scenery and terrain

Beautiful boardwalk over the bog.

I loved the trails and bridges! The maps on the trails made it easy to navigate and the views were a great escape from the city life.

Trails are not easy to navigate by using the maps provided. However, it is a loop...so you’re not lost.

Started at the south end- nice shady, curvy jaunt in the woods leading into the city. Connects to other trails and loops downtown. Paved and well marked by signposts. No road crossings- the bike path goes under road bridges next to the river.

The view of the sunset is amazing!

Nice trail, and u can swim to!

This is a really good trail to walk or bike on. Chanhassen is a very sparsely populated area and the footfall is very low so it makes it fun

A great trail for walks in the hot weather with your dogs. Most of the trail is shade and is very easy. There are very nice wooden bridges around the lake in great condition to get you over the wet spots. There are a few benches to rest on along the way. We took the short trail and it was just over an hour with two small beagles in 88 degree weather. The trail is well marked at all the intersections and the signage in excellent condition. As always bring bug spray. We will be back soon to try the longer loop soon.

Start at Woods Creek, walk along Devils Track, and up to the summit on Pincushion and you will not be disappointed.

It was beautiful- not too many bugs!

We hiked a combination of mountain bike and paved trails, approximately 4 miles. Very nice!

Great trail with some variety in terrain, incline. Nice view of Jensen Lake—water lily blooms were ready to pop!

nice paved trails

Just don’t try to enter the trail from the rest area. It’s a real SOB
