Biking & Hiking Trails
Ride it all or just enjoy a segment or two, the Mississippi River Trail provides opportunities tailored for bicyclists of all types and ages to follow America’s great river. The bikeway starts at the river’s source in Itasca State Park, where the water’s just ankle-deep and a narrow small stream. It winds almost 500 miles within Minnesota while gaining strength from its various tributaries while passing through valleys, bluffs, prairies, and woodlands and ends nearly 3,000 miles downstream in the Delta Region at the Gulf of Mexico.
Minnesota’s route primarily relies on road shoulders and low-traffic roads, but also includes relatively long segments of scenic state and regional trails. You can match travel to your needs and desires—there’s something for everyone—come experience and enjoy the river!
Little Falls is near to miles and miles of paved bike trails, providing smooth & easy riding, or plan on hiking on any of our scenic pathways or county back roads. Maps available. A map and information on Paul Bunyan Trail can be found on the Minnesota DNR website.
The proposed Camp Ripley/Veterans State Trail would start at Crow Wing State Park at the southern end of the Paul Bunyan Trail, go south along the Mississippi River through Little Falls, and end at the Soo Line Trail near Royalton.
Hours: 9-6 Monday to Friday, 9-5 Saturday, Closed Holidays
