High Bridge and Cherokee Regional Park Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"The High Bridge connects West Seventh Street and Cherokee Regional Park. The bridge reflects its name: it is the highest bridge on the Mississippi River in Minneapolis and St. Paul. With a 4% grade, it is 0.5 mile long with a 160-foot deck height. The current bridge was constructed in 1987. The first bridge (1889) was replaced after a tornado/severe storm struck, and was rebuilt in 1904. Today, the new bridge affords a breathtaking vantage point of the Mississippi River, St. Paul, and the surrounding area.
Today, craft brewers’ talent is measured on the India Pale Ale (IPA) and countless creative and revived styles—the cold clear style of the malt-forward lager was all the rage in 1857, when the saloon originally opened. After completing this challenging walk, imbibe in a lager that transports you to that time."
