Arguably the best choice for a lake run in St. Paul. The loop around the lake is 1.7 miles and for the longer run, connect to the trails in Como Park at south.
Summit Avenue stretches from the Mississippi River in the west towards St. Paul downtown. The tree-lined street and path passes the most prestigious homes in the city. Nice option to add on a jaunt to the State Capitol.
One can put together an interesting run in downtown St. Paul. Enjoy a jaunt along the Capitol mall and the pretty residential area to the east. Also several paths under the bridges: Upper Landing Park on the north side and Harriet Island Park on the south side.
