Great trail to get out on and have a nice leisure day. It is great but gets packed so make sure to get out early if you want a long ride.

Multiple choices on both sides of the river. Bike, runner, and walker friendly. On a good weather day, a perfect choice. On a bad weather day, walk the skyway.

River road is a bike trail along the Mississippi. Minneapolis does a great job maintaining its side. St. Paul needs to take some lessons. Whether you're biking, skating or running, there are great views of the river and its activities. It can be very busy...More

We just returned from a week long stay in Minneapolis. I have heard about the many greenways in the city but had no idea how magnificent they really are! The River Road Trail is certainly the prettiest. It winds along the Mississippi River past little...More
