Things To Do



Once completed, Mississippi River Trail (MRT) will extend 27 miles along the Mississippi River from St. Paul to Hastings, providing scenic views of the river and connections to local parks and trails and other community destinations.  The trail will be paved and is intended for non-motorized uses such as walking, bicycling and in-line skating. 
The regional trail construction will be completed in phased segments with an anticipated completion date of 2017. 
Currently, the north and south/east segments of the MRT are open for use.  Trailheads for the north segment are located at Kaposia Landing Park and Simon's Ravine Trailhead in South St. Paul off of Concord Avenue and Swing Bridge Trailhead in Inver Grove Heights.  The trailhead for the south/east segment are located in the  Spring Lake Park Reserve at the Lower Spring Lake Trailhead and Schaar's Bluff Trailhead.
