The Gateway Trail begins in St. Paul and ends near Stillwater, MN at Pine Point. The first half of the trail winds its way through a couple of suburban communities. The second half of the trail has a more rural feel to it with a mix of small farms, large open areas, ponds and woods. For the most part, it's... More

I can't count the number of times I have cycled the Gteway Trail. It is beautiful at any time of year. Weekends can be congested with pedestrians, however.

Love the Gateway Trail. Last weekend we biked the new addition that connects to the Gateway called "Brown's Creek" that will take you into downtown Stillwater. Beautiful scenery with the flowing creek. Locked up the bikes and roamed around Stillwater. Had lunch overlooking the St Croix River. Wonderful afternoon.

I love the fact that this trail is 3/4 mile from my house; I've run hundreds of miles on this trail. It is beautiful, quiet and very scenic. For the hardcore runner or biker in you, the entire distance of the trail is sufficient; around 20 miles. I only wish the Minneapolis greenway and this trail who led connect! It... More

I walk and ride this trail all the time and love every moment of it. It's one of my most used and favourite outdoor places to walk and cycle.

Love Minnesota's trail systems. My husband and I walk and bike the trail on a regular basis. Well maintained by the state/city. The new Browns creek addition is wonderful, brings you right down into Stillwater, where you can go to breakfast or lunch.

We rented bikes for the week and cycled all over the metro area down the Gateway and many other paths visiting many of the beautiful parks, lakes, rivers, etc (Como, Minnehaha, Phalen, Lake Calhoun and many many more). A highlight of our stay

We're building endurance for RAGBRAI in a few weeks, so we rode the Gateway from North St. Paul to Stillwater, adding a loop around Lake Johanna on the way back (total of 40 miles). Initially, the trail was wooded and shaded through suburban and light industrial areas, leading to more open stretches near a highway, and then into rural, wooded... More

A great wooded bike trail once you get out of the city. Take the Bruce Vento trail out from St. Paul rather that the start of the Gateway. End at Pinepoint park or ride back for a good long ride.

Beautiful trail.. Really nice asphalt surface. Horse trail runs along side the paved trail. I try riding this trail at least a few times a year.
