Lake Rebecca Park Reserve

Lake Rebecca Park Reserve Professional Review and Guide

"Combining Big Woods (a hardwood forest), forest, marsh, and wetland with lovely Lake Rebecca itself, there’s something for everyone at Lake Rebecca Park Reserve.

Though the park is particularly stunning dressed in fall colors, its paved trails make it easy to visit year-round. It’s also part of the Three Rivers Park District’s restoration program for trumpeter swans, helping bring the birds, which are considered threatened in Minnesota, back to strength and giving you a good shot at seeing them in action."

"Geologically speaking, Lake Rebecca Park Reserve lies on the ground moraine deposited by the Des Moines lobe of the Wisconsin ice age glacial material. The park has rolling country side that was clear-cut by early settlers for agricultural use.

Much of that land continues to revert naturally back to a Big Woods forested composition in what is called “old field” succession. Maple and basswood forests are slowly regaining footholds as this park returns to a more woodsy nature. The Hennepin Regional Park District is still acquiring land for the park. When complete, Lake Rebecca Park Reserve will have more than 2,500 acres. The bike/hike trail offers the best all-around experience at Lake Rebecca."

"One of the prettiest rides in this book and my favorite, especially in the fall and early in the morning; uncrowded, quiet; excellent trail condition over rolling hills with few technical sections; flying turns, quick descents, challenging climbs; a straight-up ideal mountain bike loop. Tread: Entire loop is oh-so-sweet packed singletrack. Location: Approximately 30 miles west of Minneapolis."
