Nice trails for the ones we could get on. A lot of trails closed due to spring flooding. The Lilydale part of this ride was inaccessible due to trail closed so unable to get anywhere near the bluffs. Enough other areas to ride so still had a great ride.

More of a running trail

A good portion of this trail is in a big sloped park that overlooks the Mississippi and down town Saint Paul. The views are great, but the hill is quite a bit of work if you're in a wheel chair or if you're pushing a stroller; however, it's right next to a nice quaint neighborhood and it has a nice jungle gym foe little kids as well.

Very fun trail and I saw so many different wild animals! A family of deers and a random turkey walking the trail!

Love coming here in every season.

We spent about an hour walking this trail today and saw only 6 or 7 other people. It's a lovely oasis of woods in the city, but you do hear constant road noise.

Nice trail, somewhat an unknown gem right in the city of Roseville. Great place to walk your dog. I often see bikers there but unless you are training, I personally I would not bike here, lots of steep inclines.

Note that the Holland Lake trail access off Cliff Rd is closed until 11/30/17. Start at Visitors Center and follow sign to Holland Lake. Once you hit trail closed signs follow the loop on your left. Nice hike. Mostly quiet on a beautiful September Sunday until you get near the Visitors Center.

Trail up the Bluffs says it was closed, but lots of people walking it. I would not rate it hard either, maybe moderate. Although a lot is on sidewalks the last half, nice walk.

wonderful hiling trails

lovely shady trail..got beautiful deer photos.

Trail closed at the park, the rest is paved along a road

Very nice leisure trail system with excellent signage as there are a number of loops within loops. Trail winds around a number of lakes and ponds.

Really fun hiking trail if you want to get into nature w/o traveling far from the cities. Some great views from rock outcrops of the Mississippi River and some fun scrambling sections. Couldn't complete the full loop b/c the river was too high and the trail got cut off on the west side of the river.

I hiked this trail because I was looking for geocaches... but I really enjoyed my hike and found myself spending an entire day here!

The whole trail is NOT wheelchair accessible. I would not recommend the east loop of this trail. I was really disappointed.

Great dog park!

We always have a great time in the off leash dog park area with our two dogs. Lots of space and trails to roam. And a couple ponds for puppies to take dips in on hot days! Two thumbs up!

Beautiful hike with interesting scenery. Strolling paths that are stroller friendly.
