Due to road construction the trail is detoured. That doesn't mean you now park in neighborhood by extension entrance. Use area parking lots. Streets are becoming a hazard.

I ride this trail quite a bit on my bike. I try to go early in the morning or later in the evening as it tends to be very busy during the day. I usually park at the trailhead in North St Paul but noticed there are quite a few other trailheads along the route into Stillwater. The trail is generally in good riding condition and its nice to see the couple potholes that were there last year were fixed. Its still a bit rough thru a stretch right out of North St Paul but after that it is smooth as silk. What I love about this trail is that it the majority of it is shaded by trees. Also love the new addition of the Brown Creek trail. Bit of a challenge going back up the trail though.

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.

Long, fairly flat ride through woods and rolling pastures. The trail is older pavement, but still in decent condition. We’ve rolled bladed and biked on this trail. Connects to other smaller trail systems on the north end. There’s a excellent horse path alongside the paved path for much of the distance. Don’t forget to stop and grab a bite to eat at the Gateway Trailside food truck!! Excellent brochette and strawberry basil lemonade!! Ice cream, sandwiches and yummy breakfast!! She found a way to add a lovely feature to the remote trail without taking away from the rustic beauty of the natural environment.

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.
