Minnesota Valley Trail
Location: Minnesota River Valley
The Minnesota Valley Trail is perfect for biking, horseback riding, snowmobiling, hiking, cross-country skiing and mountain biking.
A natural surface trail runs from Belle Plaine to Chaska and a paved trail from Chaska to Shakopee. The multi-use trail parallels the Minnesota River.
While using the trail system you can explore the varied landscapes which include blufftop oak savanna, wetlands and floodplain forest.

South Creek Trail
Location: Throughout City Limits
This eight-foot wide paved trail system runs along the south side of South Street, connects to Veterans Park, and provides pedestrian and non-motorized access under Highway 169. It then runs through Emma Krumbee's Apple Orchard and extends through the O'Brien Subdivisions east across Hickory Boulevard.
It is proposed that in the future, this trail will connect to a trail system along Hickory Boulevard, extend north to connect to a trail or walkway across the Highway 169/CR64 interchange and connect to Creekside Park and future MN River Regional Trail.
Currently, the City has 13.5 miles of trails and 21.15 miles of sidewalks. View the Trails Map (PDF) for more information.
