Yep, this is a paved trail. I included it because of its location and to give you a head’s-up for what is to come. Being on pavement, there are no technical worries on this trail, and mountain bike purists might shy away, but it’s a pretty fun ride. The trail winds along close to the Minnesota River and near the original downtown area of Shakopee. (Much of the life has left the old Main Street after the invasion of the dreaded strip malls out on the highway.) At the turnaround point, there is access to the State Corridor Trail and the St. Lawrence rides. As mentioned previously, the state trail is planned to continue through Shakopee and on down the river valley. Stay alert for major changes (not necessarily good ones) if that happens. Tread: All 9+ miles are on paved bike trail.
