Neighborhood Festivals (include upcoming dates/location)

Nice places for a bike ride:

  1. Gateway Trail starts just north of the Capitol and heads north-east into Washington County. Rails-to-Trails conversion, so grades are gentle. Connects to other trails at Lake Phalen.
  2. Morgan Trail - very flat overall; you can ride from Battle Creek to Minneapolis AND BEYOND!!!
  3. hard to beat Crosby for a shaded cruise through some woods. Off-trail stuff is very sandy, and if you get stuck, you'd better have insect repellent!
  4. Lists of Trails

Nice places for a picnic:

  1. Mounds Park
  2. Newell Park
  3. Como Lake
  4. Bruce Vento Nature Sanctuary - bring your own blanket. Also a good place to bring little kids to ride their bikes safely.
