This trail runs form the middle of Saint Paul to the countryside north of Stillwater providing a variety of bicycling experiences. It is mostly paved or packed gravel. It's fairly wide and not too hilly - much is flat. You can easily access the trail at various points to customize your ride length and choose the type of scenery -... More

There have been so many nice upgrades on the Gateway the last few years. When we first started riding the trail (from the Hwy 36 area to the north dead end) it had some dangerous street crossings, but nice, new bridges and tunnels have taken care of those. My wife used to do inline skating marathons and I'd ride along... More

It's a great bike trail in the middle of the city. You hear car traffic on some parts of the trail but mostly in wooded areas. It's a great way to get exercise and enjoy Minnesota outdoors.

I love the gateway trail! I have not run into any issues with going by myself and I’m a female. I utilize it all the time by running, walking, rollerblading, and biking. The trails are always clean and the leaves are stunning in the fall. The trail is long enough where you can find restaurants, water stops (wish there was... More

This is a great trail for a walk or bike ride. You may even see a horse or two. Nice wide trails and beautiful scenery. Also, it's a good distance at a little under 10 miles.

There are several access points to the trail with off-road parking available but limited. There's a fee for parking at the Washington County Regional park, but there's a very nice restroom there and cars are less likely to be broken into, unlike the area off of Jamaca where you have to be sure not to leave valuables in the car....

From the pastures dotted with cows to the gently rolling hills this is a beautiful trail that is the pride of Minnesota. Early in the morning don't be surprised to see deer or wild turkeys crossing the trail. The Gateway Trail is a wonderful asset to the network of trails in Minnesota. I can't wait until it goes thru to... More

This past September I was invited to go for a walk on the Gateway Trail. I live in the area but had never been on the trail so I was anxious to see what it was like. I have to say that I was pleasantly surprised by how beautiful and natural the area it goes through is despite it running... More

I Bike, Rollerblade, Run and Walk here. The scenery is beautiful, from farms to woods to picturesque ponds. It's hard to believe you are so close to the city. There are just enough hills to make it a bit challenging, and rest stops along the way. The park at the end has modern toilets, drinking water and picnic tables.
