Theodore Wirth Park

Theodore Wirth Park Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Theodore Wirth Park is not only steeped in local history, it is also packed corner to corner with year-round activities for all outdoor lovers, be it on the golf course (club or disc), hiking trails, swimming beach, or skis. This short but lively fat tire trip through the woods is a gem in the Minneapolis park system, with an orbit of feeder trails for express access and après-ride distractions.

Wirth is like a Tootsie Roll Pop. Ask a Twin Cities mountain biker to describe Theodore Wirth Park, and a likely answer resembles the iconic lollipop, with a shiny, enticing exterior and a bonus treat in the middle. This stellar trail system is the result of a solid relationship between MORC, the Minneapolis Park & Recreation Board, and Minneapolis off Road Cycling Advocates (MOCA)."
