Bike Trail near Lyndale Avenue

Posted by Doug Shidell, November 19th, 2020

A new multiuse trail is being constructed on
the north side of the Minnesota River from Lyndale
Avenue. Currently it is a 1.6 mile paved trail that ends
abruptly near Mounds Springs Park. Eventually this trail
will stretch east to Fort Snelling State Park and west to
the city of Jordan. The trail is a boon to walkers and
paved trail bicyclists, but mountain bikers will have a
degraded experience. One rider compared it to riding
on a frontage road next to a highway.

The trail connects to the multi-use trail on I-35W and
will eventually create a loop connecting to the Black
Dog paved trail on the south side of the river via the
Cedar Avenue bike bridge.
