Nine Mile Creek Regional Trail

Sometimes, the journey is the reward. That definitely will be the case with the Nine Mile Creek Regional Trail as it meanders past its namesake creek, as well as the wetlands and woodlands of the Edina area. When complete, the trail will take users across 1.7 miles of wooden boardwalk and 14 miles of paved trail connecting Hopkins and the Minnesota River Bluffs LRT Regional Trail with the cities of Edina and Richfield. From Richfield, users can access the Nokomis-Minnesota River Regional Trail and travel north to Lake Nokomis or south to the Minnesota River.

Segments in Richfield and Hopkins are complete; portions of the Edina segment will open during the spring of 2018. The trail will extend 15.3 miles when complete.
