Regional Trails

The Gateway State Trail is an 18-mile long paved trail that spans between the cities of St. Paul and Stillwater in Southeastern Minnesota. The trail connects to multiple other regional and local trails.

Much of the Gateway State Trail is built along abandoned railroad beds and it has gentle grades and long straight stretches. Many people use it for commuting into St. Paul or to many of the other business areas and schools along its route.
