Minneapolis-St. Paul, MN

Minneapolis:   Minnehaha Parkway & Lake Nokomis

This scenic pathway, located in southwest Minneapolis, stretches from Lake Harriet to Minnehaha Park from west to east. You run alongside the Minnehaha Creek, which joins beautiful Lake Nokomis. We recommend the 7.4 mile lake loop, enjoying the views and rejoining the Minnehaha Parkway after the 2.75 mile loop around Lake Nokomis.  Minnehaha Park is located on the banks of the mighty Mississippi. The whole stretch is a part of Twin Cities Marathon course. The route is flat and paved, and it is one of the most popular trails in the summer.
