Great Trail

Great running trail. No traffic, peaceful, serene. There are often 5k's and Half Marathons along this route - very popular trail in St Cloud.

Awesome trail with plenty of shade or sun depending what you desire. It is great for a long run or a short walk.

If you want to take a nice walk with great trails this would be the place. It wasn't crowded when I was there and really enjoyed the area.

loved that you can now take this bike trail from downtown St. Cloud to I-94 ramp. A nice, paved scenic ride along the Mississippi River. St. Cloud State University is along the trail and a great place to stop for refreshments (Atwood Memorial Center).

I love this trail. I went to St. Cloud State for years and use this trail all the time! It's so close to campus. It's a great trail to take in nature and not feel like you're in the busy city. Beautiful in the summer, fall, and spring...I don't run in the winter so I don't know what it's like.... More

This is a lovely trail alongside the Mississippi River. It's a little short for cycling, and on busy days, it can be a little too narrow for cyclists, runners, and walkers sharing the space. But it is a nice, shady respite with some pleasant views.

I enjoy walking on the Beaver Islands Trail along the west bank of the Mississippi River south of St. Cloud State University. Check out the historical marker for the original location of St. John's Abbey. The monks settled there in 1856 when they first arrived in Minnesota, and I can see why. It's a beautiful location.
