I have been enjoying the Grand Rounds since I moved to Minneapolis in the 80s. Biking in Mpls has improved making it one of the best cycling cities. The Grand Rounds is still a fabulous ride especially along the Mississippi during fall colors 🍂🍁🚴....

This tour of Minneapolis lakes can easily be done in a day. Signage is excellent. Trail users are typically well behaved and the scenery is not to be missed. Be sure to visit the Lake Harriet band shell. A treat from another era.

An extensive pathway for biking and walking. I only walked a portion of it but if I lived in the area, it is definitely worth exploring most of the pathways.

Enjoyed the trails however a little disappointing that Minneapolis bike trails appear to be designed for recreation and not transport as they fail to connect with each other.

Miles and miles of paved bike trails in good condition that circle Minneapolis, wind around the lakes (Harriet, Calhoun, Isles, and part of Cedar), run alongside the Mississippi river, and hug Minnehaha Creek. Cool and shady on many parts of the ride. Fall provides beautiful...More

If you have a car, this series of parkways is a wonderful driving tour of the neighbourhoods, parks and lakes in Minneapolis. We recommend stopping for lunch or a drink on the lakeshore at Harriet Lake.
