“A great place to walk”

Reviewed 11 December 2012

I enjoy walking on the Beaver Islands Trail along the west bank of the Mississippi River south of St. Cloud State University. Check out the historical marker for the original location of St. John's Abbey. The monks settled there in 1856 when they first arrived in Minnesota, and I can see why. It's a beautiful location.

I just wish it were longer. Very scenic along the river, but then you end up on campus and there's really no where to go from there. The other direction ends at the golf course. It's maybe 5-6 miles long. Would love to see that at least doubled.

This trail is paved and wide... so great for those extremely warm March Minnesota days when everyone and their mother is out biking, running, walking and rollerblading, yet there is still plenty of room on the trail. The scenery is great and the off roading trails are fun!

The Beaver Islands trail is a nice paved trail that follows the western bank of the Mississippi River. The negative aspect of the trail is that a good part of the trail also follows along a parking lot that is frequently trashed by local college students.
