On bike, in car, on cross country skis...find a map of the Grand Rounds and experience the beauty of the Twin Cities and see the outdoorsy people who live here!

What a wonderful system. I've really enjoyed everything I've seen on the Grand Rounds. Ties the city together in a lovely way.

Wonderful. By bike, walking or car. Go when you have lots of time, Drove around it in my car. Beautiful. Also shows the dedication to the parks and access to the people in Minneapolis. Each lake unique and beautiful. Lots of people enjoying themselves. Separate trails for walkers and bikers/skateboarders. So each can enjoy without interference from the other.

What a terrific set of bike paths! You can travel out to the lakes region, hang out in the city, or just ride across town. Paths are paved and signage is excellent. A great stop is the Mid Town Market for some Hot Indian food!

Do this by bike, as much as you can. Slow pace allows one to see the differences between the lakes and neighborhoods. If not, drive slowly and enjoy the beauty and green of Minneapolis. All this is possible because of visionaries who saved the beauty of the lakes and the parks of Minneapolis for the access of everyone. What a... More

Love this route for a casual ride. Iconic Minneapolis! Fairly well marked but bring a trail map with you.

Excellent way to see the city. We try to do it at least once a summer. Can rent bikes in the city or we just bring our own. Lunch in the Lake Calhoun area is always great.

Love driving around the Ground rounds. Lots of beautiful lakes and the one of a kind mansion homes along them to see! Fun to bike as well! Great biking!

It is a beautiful ride and well maintained. It is annoying to find walkers on the bike trail when they have their own designated pathway. I also would avoid it on peak times during the summer weekends.
