“running with birds, bunnies and squirrels”
Reviewed 16 July 2012

I especially like a good run in the lower arb on a cool, crisp morning with small animals are sitting on the path at every turn. Unfortunately, a muggy July morning this past week didn't quite fit that profile, but regardless of the weather, the trail is always a welcome opportunity to enjoy nature and get a little exercise in the morning when visiting Northfield.

“This is a free, beautiful area.”
Reviewed 17 March 2012

This is a great to walk, explore with little kids, with a loved one, or by yourself. It's a FREE beautiful resource, maintained by Carleton. We saw a muskrat and ducks, but what we really saw was the Cannon River, trees and lovely nature.

“Great walking -- whatever the season”
Reviewed 18 November 2011

Cowling is already a beautiful place, but they are restoring the native prairie, and that will make it even nicer . . .
