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.
