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 6.4 mile Brown's Creek Trail will connect 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.

President’s Message

  The paving project on Browns Creek has started and hopefully, weather permitting, it will be finished early November, 2014.  Full usage and trail dedication should be next spring.  Your trail advocates, the members of the GBCTA, will work with the DNR in the coming months to help determine what the priorities should be for using the $519,000 bonding appropriation passed this summer.  Among our thoughts are acquiring several key easements from Pine Point Park into downtown Scandia.  Also, we would like to see the start of a “model” wayside at the junction of the Browns Creek trail and the Gateway Trail.  We can use your input as the DNR moves forward on trail acquisition and development.  We think the $10 membership dues are the best investment you can make for making this the best trail system in the state!
