    We do not have a lot of information regarding this closure, but from the DNR:

    "The trail is going to be closed July 19 at Neal Ave for some finishing work related to last year’s road project. I don’t know how long the closure will last at this point but there will be a posted detour so it shouldn’t be too big an impact on trail users."

    One of the many splendors of our trails is the variety of wildlife! This huge snapping turtle was spotted just north of Highway 36, between two ponds, by a member of the GBCTA last week. Keep your eyes open while you're enjoying the trails and who knows what you'll see...

    This spring, enjoy one more amenity at Brown's Creek Park when you're passing through or getting ready to head out on the trail: a new water station! The Gateway Brown's Creek Trail Association was proud to be part of this project.

    From Tom McCarty, City Administrator for Stillwater: 
    “The City of Stillwater is very proud of the collaborative effort by the Gateway Trail Association, community members, City Council and city staff, in completing the water station project at Neal Avenue adjacent to the Brown’s Creek Trail.  As a Stillwater resident, bicycling enthusiast and trail user, I am very appreciative of the community support for the City’s vision and planning for bicycling and pedestrian trails.  This is another great amenity to enhance the trail recreation users’ experience.”

    A recent column in the Pioneer Press served as a short but important  reminder about safety on the trail - it's available to read here.


    • Be aware of traffic at all trail/street intersections
    • Be sure to come to a full stop and look for traffic at all “Stop signs”, at all intersections
    • Follow safe trail use rules
    • Be safe out there!!

    Thanks to GBCTA board member and master naturalist, Dennis Lindeke, for creating this guide to help trail users of all ages identify toads and frogs you might discover as you traverse the trails this spring and summer.
