We enjoyed a wonderful walk along a pre-determined route along the river, over the bridge, and through historic areas. Highly recommend it.

The Stone Arch Bridge is another great attraction my wife and I enjoyed July 5, 2014 which connects Mills City Ruins Park on one side to Father Hennepin's Bluff Park on the other side. It is a great place for a view of the Mississippi River, Mill City Ruins Park, Gold Medal Flour (Mill City Museum) attraction, Guthrie Theater Bldg.&... More

Yes, the Stone Arch Bridge is beautiful and a perfect place to stroll with loved ones or pump up your heart rate. However, there is sooooo much more to do in the area. Was just there on vacation with family and friends, and we spent hours exploring the trails and the park around the bridge. There are numerous trails that... More

Walked along the beautiful bridge and riverside. Beautiful behind the scenes look at Minneapolis. Spent July 4th weekend here and it is the place to be. People have personal BBQs set up, food trucks, glow necklaces etc. they are geared up for a good time. Fireworks start about 9pm, and light up the skyline (til about 2am)! Enjoy!

If you like hiking and history and natural wonders, this is a must see for Minneapolis. An Old stone bridge built in the 1880s converted to a running/biking/hiking use, with awesome views of Saint Anthony Falls, and the place where the mills were built that eventually became Minneapolis. Easy walk across the bridge.

Parked 50 yards from the bridge walkway, went early to avoid crows and heat. Great views of the new I-35 bridge and St Anthony Falls. Well worth the effort

Minneapolis is an amazing city, and the Stone Arch Bridge allows tourists and locals alike to take it all in and appreciate the history of the place. We walked on an overcast, cool June day, and were still blown away by the beauty of the Minneapolis skyline, the imposing remains of the mills and factories that once functioned there, and... More

Visited this site with my 17 year old son. We took a historical tour through the riverfront area on Segways (which I highly recommend as it was so much fun and a great way to get teens interested in the history of the city) and this was one of the sites we stopped at. So beautiful, with a lot if... More

What a nice area. The bridge is beautiful and the history of the area is fascinating with the flour mills and St. Anthony Falls right nearby.
