When completed, the Bassett Creek Regional Trail will measure approximately seven miles from French Regional Park, through the Cities of Plymouth, New Hope, Crystal, and Golden Valley to the Minneapolis Grand Rounds at Theodore Wirth Regional Park.

Cedar Lake Regional Trail

Beginning in July 2015 the Cedar Lake Regional Trail Bridge at Hwy 100 in St. Louis Park will be reconstructed. The trail will remain open during construction of the bridge. For more information on the entire Hwy 100 project visit the MN Department of Transportation website. 

Nokomis-Minnesota River Regional Trail (Formerly Intercity Regional Trail)

The Nokomis-Minnesota Regional Trail measures approximately 5.14 miles from Lake Nokomis Parkway in Minneapolis to East 86th Street in Bloomington. This route expands multi-modal transportation and recreational access to vital employment, retail and recreational sites in the metropolitan region – providing safety, economic development, mobility, and environmental benefits.
