Cedar Lake Trail

June 14, 2011 Grand Opening (pdf)


Also known as Americas first bicycle freeway, the Cedar Lake Trail is a 3.5 mile path connecting St Louis Park with Downtown and the Mississippi River. From west to east, three separated lanes (one for pedestrians and two for bicyclists) run past Cedar Lake, through restored tall grass prairie, next to a commuter rail line, under the Twins Ballpark, and finally to the Mississippi River.

The trail connects to other important bicycle facilities such as Cedar Lake Parkway, the Kenilworth Trail, the Luce Line Trail, the Downtown bike network, and West River Parkway. View a map (pdf) to see these and other connections.
