Gateway-Brown's Creek Trail

The Gateway - Brown's Creek trail is the recreational jewel of the East Metro Area of the Twin Cities. It is heavily used by thousands of people year-round. The former Soo Line rail bed, now paved, runs 18 miles from St. Paul, MN to Pine Point Park in Stillwater, MN. The recently acquired 5.9 mile Brown's Creek Trail connects with the Gateway Trail, enabling trail users to go from the St. Croix River (in downtown Stillwater) to the Mississippi River. The Gateway-Brown's Creek Trail is a multi-use trail providing biking, rollerblading, running, walking, horseback riding and cross-country skiing to trail users year round.
