One of the best bike trails in the Twin Cities. Head out to Stillwater, or take a smaller round trip - not too hilly and the scenery is amazing.!

I am so thankful that our State puts a priority on bike trails. This one is one of the best in the twin cities. The nice thing is that you are in the country but not far from nice restaurants an sites to explore.

Pleasant and well-kept. Very popular with bikers and saw some people on horseback, too! We walked from Jamaca road to Lansing road, with a lovely break at Trail Side cafe. The trail was mostly flat and the water along the way is all private property....More
