Periodic Trail Closures in St. Louis Park
North Cedar Lake Regional Trail will close periodically in St. Louis Park around the area of Dakota Park and Peter Hobart Elementary School from late April through early June 2021. A short, residential street detour route will be posted to allow trail users to pass through the area.
The City of St. Louis Park is constructing a bicycle and pedestrian bridge over the BNSF railway in this closure area. The future bridge will connect thousands of residents on the north side of the railroad tracks to the regional trail and other city bike and pedestrian facilities to the south. Learn more about the project.
Over 100 miles of the regional trail system are maintained in the winter, generally from mid-November through March. This is achieved through a partnership between Three Rivers and local cities.

Things to do
Biking in Three Rivers is a great way to get the whole family outside. Whether you’re the casual rider or a cyclist in training, you’ll appreciate more than 240 miles of off-roadway bike/hike trails that wind through woodlands and grasslands and rim the shorelines of lakes and ponds at our parks.
Three Rivers offers abundant scenery for you and your dog to enjoy year round, with paved, turf, regional and skijoring/dog sledding trails that are dog-friendly. Dogs must be on a six-foot non-retractable leash unless in a designated dog off-leash area. Owners must pick-up after their dogs.
One of the best ways to explore year-round is to head out for a hike on the extensive trail system in Three Rivers. Trails wind through the woodland, grassland and wetland habitats of many species of wildlife. You’ll be amazed at what you might see along the way.
Please note: In winter, hiking on cross-country ski trails is not permitted.
