Great Northern Trail

Great Northern Trail Professional Review and Guide

"The Great Northern Trail offers a paved north-south route across the city of Elk River on the fringe of the northwestern outskirts of Minneapolis.

For nearly 5 miles, the rail-trail winds through the community along a former railroad bed operated by the Great Northern Railroad 1886–1976. Currently, the trail is paved from County Road 1 in the northern section of Elk River to the city limits. A grass-surfaced section continues on to the Zimmerman city line."
