Lilydale Regional Park Brickyard Trail Professional Review and Guide
"The Lilydale Park Trail that runs along the Mississippi and Minnesota Rivers from downtown St. Paul to suburban Eagan impressed me. The western half of this trail is wide, has a yellow line painted down the center, has a white line painted down each side to make narrow shoulders, and is incredibly small asphalt. Compared with other recreational trails, this one marks as one of the best in the state. According to one rider who uses it frequently, the trail doesn't get too crowded, even on weekends. So don't tell too many of your friends."
