South St Paul Riverfront Trail

South St. Paul Riverfront Trail Professional Review and Guide

"If you are into trains, barges, and big, slowflowing rivers, then this is the trail for you. There’s not a lot of glamour in this paved path that follows the shoreline of the Mississippi as it flows past downtown St. Paul. The east bank is tree lined and gives the illusion that expansive forests lie beyond the waters. Not so the west bank.

This is the industrial side of this section of the river. The trail runs immediately parallel to an extensive railroad yard with multiple tracks, idling locomotives, and a repository of boxcars. It’s not a wooded wonderland, but it is a representation of the commercial lifeblood of this magnificent river. If you don’t enjoy the natural scenery, you can’t help but appreciate the commerce created on the river."
