Baker/Carver Regional Trail: Acquisition

baker carver

The Baker/Carver Regional Trail Master Plan was approved in June 2015. The proposed Baker/Carver Regional Trail measures approximately 17 miles from Carver Park Reserve in Carver County through the cities of Minnetrista, Independence and Maple Plain and terminates at Baker Park Reserve in Hennepin County.

The trail will connect to the Lake Minnetonka LRT, Dakota Rail and Lake Independence Regional Trails, the Luce Line State Trail, Kingswood Special Recreation Feature, and Gale Woods Farm - linking people to regional parks and other local and regional destinations.

Three Rivers has purchased land for this project. Learn more.
