Crystal Lake Regional Trail

Crystal Lake Regional Trail offers a wealth of possibilities for trail users. Pause by the shore of Crystal Lake on a spring day to watch the loons as they take a break from their own journeys north. Meander through downtown Robbinsdale, or continue south on the trail and connect to the Grand Rounds Trail near Lowry Avenue. Currently, the 4.3 mile trail is complete through Robbinsdale and Crystal.  Ultimately, it will continue northwest through Brooklyn Park, Osseo and Maple Grove before joining with the Medicine Lake Regional Trail in Elm Creek Park Reserve.
