Great Running trail

Was looking for a running trail and I was so happy I found this gem along the river. It is a beautiful place and great for running or biking.

St. Cloud doesn't seem to have a lot of walking trails like this, so it's nice to have a place where you can walk, run or bike for a few miles, but it's a pretty basic, straight-forward trail — nothing too exciting.

Our first visit was this afternoon and we enjoyed the trail very much. It is asphalt. The beginning is divided for walkers and bikers. However, most of the trail is shared by all. The asphalt is well maintained. Nice views of the river often come into view. The few people we saw were friendly. Not crowded. We felt safe. Saw... More

This trail takes you along the Mississippi River. It's great for walking or biking. There are many trees, and as it goes along the river, there are spots where you can go off-trail and get a closer view of the river and the wildlife. It's a great, paved trail with parking close by.

Great running trail. No traffic, peaceful, serene. There are often 5k's and Half Marathons along this route - very popular trail in St Cloud.

If you want to take a nice walk with great trails this would be the place. It wasn't crowded when I was there and really enjoyed the area.

loved that you can now take this bike trail from downtown St. Cloud to I-94 ramp. A nice, paved scenic ride along the Mississippi River. St. Cloud State University is along the trail and a great place to stop for refreshments (Atwood Memorial Center).
