Mississippi River Regional Trail
The new Mississippi River Regional Trail offers unique experiences for bikers and hikers in Anoka County. It is one of a few trails that combines regional and local parks and attractions. The new trail offers a link from Coon Rapids Dam Regional Park through the cities of Coon Rapids, Fridley and Columbia Heights into the Minneapolis parkway system. Many points of interest are located along the trail corridor and are briefly described on the reverse side.
The Mississippi River Regional Trail connects with a variety of other regional trails in the north-metro area. At Coon Rapids Dam the trail crosses over the dam walkway and connects to the North Hennepin Regional Trail which leads to Elm Creek Park Reserve. To the south of the dam, you can connect to Rice Creek Regional Trail West which follows Rice Creek east through the City of Fridley. The southern end of the trail connects with the City of Minneapolis’ St. Anthony Parkway system. North of the Coon Rapids Dam Regional Park, the trail continues to the City of Anoka.
