    The DNR now has the funding to complete the trail, including all of the bridge work, due to Parks and Trails Legacy Amendment funding provided by the 2013 state Legislature. The Parks and Trails Fund receives a portion of the state sales tax revenue and may only be spent to support parks and trails of regional or statewide significance. Read the entire article here.

    Thanks to all the trail users who stopped by on National Trails Day. The weather was great in the morning hours. We passed out about 150 granola bars, and many gallons of lemonade. Over 80 people took the time to fill out our trail survey which should help the DNR assess how trail users see the trail.

    The Cayuga trailhead located near downtown St. Paul will be reconfigured and the trail extended to University Avenue as a result of a project by the Minnesota Department of Transportation. This project will replace the current Maryland Avenue bridge which runs over I-35E and improve the on- and off- ramps in the area. This project is planned to begin in the Spring of 2013 and continue through 2015. Learn more about this project here

    This project is scheduled to begin in the Spring of 2013 and be largely completed by the Fall of 2013. The aim of the project is to create a safer flow of traffic for cars seeking to cross Hwy 36 from side roads (Hilton Trail, Demontreville Trail, Highlands Trail). It will involve a bridge being built over the Gateway Trail at Hwy 36. Learn more about this project here.
