On the River to River Greenway connects Lilydale, Mendota Heights, West St. Paul and South St. Paul. The trail is in place between Robert Street and the Mississippi River in South St. Paul. Future construction projects will link Valley Park in Mendota Heights to the area near Dodge Nature Center in West St. Paul.
This paved trail runs a distance of 5.8 miles along South St. Paul's Mississippi River shoreline. The trail was built on top of the river levee, providing relatively flat terrain and excellent scenery with views of river activity and wildlife. Five trail access points, most with off-street parking, make the trail accessible for all ages and abilities.
Access points are listed below from North to South:
Simon's Ravine Trailhead (North Concord Street)
Bryant Avenue Bridge (Bryant Ave. and Concord St. No.)
Spiral Bridge (Grand and Hardman Avenue)
DNR Boat Launch (Verderosa Ave. and 494 Bridge)
Richmond Street (400 Block of E. Richmond Street)
Kaposia Park (Butler and Wilde Ave.)
A pedestrian bridge at Kaposia Park and Highway 52 allows for continuation into Dakota County Thompson Park in West St. Paul.
