This is an awesome black top trail that extends from Stillwater Mn.on an old railroad bed so the incline is easy to bike or walk. It connects to the gateway trail from St. Paul and goes for many miles through the country.

Great trail that extends a long way, but also through town. Good for walking or biking. Runs close to the St. Croix River with some nice views.
