This trail showcases woods, marshes, and glimpses of Rice Creek. Easily accessible from the Highway.

The Rice Creek North Regional Trail is 13.8 miles in total, but can be broken up into two different sections (connected by a 3.4 mile bike on county roads). The main trailhead is at 35W and County Road I. You will find the parking lot just after exiting on County Road I. This is the southern segment which has 2.2 mile loop going south, and a 3.2 mile trail following the creek north. There are several spurs from this trail so be sure to have a map with you as it is easy to get lost. The northern segment of this trail has 5.0 miles that wind through the Rice Creek chain of lakes.

The entire trail is paved making it great for biking, running, rollerblading, or walking the dog. This is a relatively popular trail year-round and is plowed fairly promptly after snowfall in the winters.

Running Too!

Great for running as well! Paths are well-paved, so not to strenuous. Look for herons in the spring/summer, and admire the prairie restoration projects going on as well!
