What a magnificent day to spend hiking or biking the River Road Trail. We walked about a 4 mile loop and used the natural trail close to the river. The crunching sound of fallen leaves and clear views of the river scenery were spectacular. This...More

This is my favorite place to go for a run when I am in town. I get so distracted by the scenery that I lose track of my time, and end up running for miles.

River road is a bike trail along the Mississippi. Minneapolis does a great job maintaining its side. St. Paul needs to take some lessons. Whether you're biking, skating or running, there are great views of the river and its activities. It can be very busy...More
