    Nicollet County

This is the longest section of trail in the park which runs mainly along the edge of the creek. The far end of the loop has a rather large hill. The surface is usually gravel or pea rock, depending on what the county has put on the trail recently. There is also a small creek crossing so be prepared to get your bike a little wet.

Access Info

The main access point for this trail is the bridge at the far end of the park near the gravel parking lot.

      Not a single track, but would be great for hiking. Blue rating for some steep climbs
