This walking and bicycle trail goes from St. Paul to Stillwater, we usually get on in North St. Paul near entity and Highway 36. From there we go towards the urban area or out to the more remote location in Stillwater.

The Gateway Trail stretches from St. Paul to Stillwater, or Norrell Ave. It provides shade under a canopy of trees, and has horse trails as well. It is a nice and long path.

I took this trail round-trip from Saint Paul to Stillwater with my husband and a friend, and it was one of our all-time favorite bike trips. Although the trail parallels Highway 36, there are woods that separate you from the highway, making you feel like...More

I usually access this trail by biking up from Stillwater and into the northern part of the Cities. Really nice and well-maintained. Thankful this bike trail exists in the Metro!
