This is one of a few state trails that are detailed in this book. While all state trail/regional corridors in Minnesota and Wisconsin offer many more miles of hiking and biking opportunities, those in the Twin Cities area either run along busier highways, cut through backyards, or are part of former railroad rights-of-way. These are wonderful pathways in their own right. However, I think this one deserves special mention because of its remoteness and beauty. Facilities: Picnic pavilion, rest center. The path heads down to the small pond-like body of water called Thompson Lake. Bathroom, playground, and telephone are also available.
