Central Anoka County Regional Trail

Category: Biking/Hiking Trails | Destination: Coon Rapids

Centerville Segment (3.8 miles, Rating 3.5) This segment begins at 35E in historic Centerville. Paralleling Main Street (CR 14) all the while, it goes between Centerville and Peltier Lakes before curving north past the expansive marshes of George Watch Lake. It ends at 35W. The surrounding natural wonder of the Rice Lakes certainly is splendid, but other nearby trails can show you the same thing without the next to a road part.

Andover Segment (2.5 miles, Rating 1) This segment, running next to the dangerously busy County Road 116, is thoroughly unpleasant and doesn't lead much of anywhere. Oddly enough, it is the only segment with signage telling you that you are on the right trail, and it needs it the least.

Anoka Segment (1.8 miles, Rating 2.5) This segment begins at the corner of Seventh Avenue and Bunker Lake Blvd. (County Road 116), goes past a library and a wind turbine, then intersects with the Rum River Trail (which connects to downtown Anoka, to the south) before crossing the Rum River. From there, it enters River Bend Park, where it briefly curves away from the highway, before ending at Germanium Street in Ramsey. You can make a good ride using this and the Rum River Trail.

Ramsey Segment (1.2 miles, Rating 2) The Ramsey Segment of the trail runs next to County Road 116 from Tungsten Street to Hematite Street. Though the road is not nearly as busy here as it is in Andover, the fact that the trail is still next to the road is impossible to be ignored.

P: 763 717 3240

This unique 18-hole golf course is the jewel of the National Youth Golf Center. Built for youth golfers, Victory Links has multiple tee boxes on every hole. This means the course plays from 2,834 to 7,092 yards so youth and families of all ages and abilities can play together.

In fact, the name of the course came from Minnesota's youth. Young people voted on the Victory Links name, through focus groups at North Metro middle schools. The kids liked the name because of the connection to other sports activities taking place at the National Sports Center, such as soccer, hockey, lacrosse and cycling.

Coon Creek Regional Trail

Category: Biking/Hiking Trails | Destination: Coon Rapids

This stand-alone gem (it doesn't connect to any others, though it is near the Mississippi Trail) makes for a great quick ride. It begins just outside Coon Rapids Dam Regional Park, and follows Coon Creek upstream through Coon Rapids, crossing the creek countless times on numerous different kinds of bridges. Then, it curves east and follows Coon Creek's tributary, Sand Creek, to Foley Boulevard, with lots of ups and downs. The trail runs very near trailer parks and suburban homes, and yet stays very nicely forested. Highway noise, dangerous road crossings, and some small onroad sections make this trail less than perfect, but the pavement is smooth, and it is a scenic and entertaining ride.

Coon Creek Regional Trail

Rice Creek West Regional Trail

Category: Biking/Hiking Trails | Destination: Fridley

Many portions of the trail travel immediately along Rice Creek, within the steep valleys of the floodplain. Since the trail corridor is only minutes from downtown Minneapolis/St. Paul, adjacent lands are developed residential and commercial. Some of the most interesting terrain and natural communities are located between Highway 47 and Central Avenue. Because the trail connects with the Mississippi River, many birds travel the creek on their seasonal migrations. During the spring and fall trail users may see eagles, herons, egrets, as well as loons, cormorants and pelicans.

What’s At Rice Creek Many improvements have been made along the corridor recently. In 2000, safety along the trail was improved when an underpass along the trail at T.H. 65 was installed. Several portions of the trail were repaved during this time, as well. In 2000/2001 the picnic area at Locke County Park was completely redeveloped and new sections of trail were laid in 2006.

Trails A ribbon of paved trail travels through this linear park, stretching from the Banfill-Locke Center for the Arts (Manomin County Park) to the Ramsey County border. From there, the trail continues to Long Lake Regional Park. The four mile trail corridor in Anoka County travels through upland forest and lowland natural areas. There are a few steep slopes along the corridor, which require safe and alert trail use.

Trail Connections The Rice Creek West Regional Trail connects to the Mississippi River Regional Trail near East River Road. The Mississippi River Trail Corridor links with Coon Rapids Dam Regional Park (north five miles) and Riverfront Regional Park (south four miles). To the south, the trail continues to the Minneapolis Parkway System.

Rice Creek North Regional Trail

Category: Biking/Hiking Trails | Destination: Shoreview

Southern Segment (3.2 miles, plus 2.2-mile loop, Rating 4) The Rice Creek North Trail's main trailhead is at 35W and County Road I. To the north, the trail follows the creek through Shoreview into Anoka County, with twists, curves, and spur trails left and right. This is one of the easiest trails in the metro to get lost on. Unfortunately, I mean that literally, so bring a map. The pavement condition is okay in Ramsey County, but very bumpy and cracky in Anoka County.

To the south, there is a new 2.2-mile loop in Arden Hills (the online maps still show it as proposed). Though it's not as curvy or shaded as the north part, it still adds something to the trail by showcasing a pretty section of creek from both sides. It's surprisingly pleasant for a trail in a decomposing ammunition plant, and includes the warm satisfaction only a loop can give.

Northern Segment (5.0 miles, Rating 5) This amazing segment winds through woods and marsh around the Rice Creek chain of lakes. These lands are not yet tamed by the trail, and the tranquility of it all makes you want to keep your voice down. Most turns are still unmarked.
