The Coon Rapids trail system consists of several miles of paved walkways providing residents with access to natural areas, wildlife, and public parks.
Mississippi Regional Trail
The Mississippi Regional Trail Corridor begins at the northwest corner of Coon Rapids and passes through the southern portion of the city beginning at 122nd Avenue and Zea Street, following the Wedgewood Trail to Coon Rapids Boulevard, passing through Dahlia Park and Riverview Parks to Mississippi Boulevard where it enters the Coon Rapids Regional Dam Park and exits the city at East River Road into Fridley.
Sand Creek & Coon Creek Trail
The Sand Creek and Coon Creek Trail System begins at the entrance to Lions Coon Creek Park and follows Coon Creek then Sand Creek from Hanson Boulevard to Foley Boulevard and north into Bunker Hills Regional Park.
The lower portion of the trail follows Coon Creek (where the creeks split) and begins at Xeon Boulevard and Northdale Boulevard. The trail crosses Highway 10, and continues behind the City Center, through Erlandson Nature Center and Robinson Park. Eventually the trail will link with the Mississippi Regional Trail to the south. Older portions of the trail have recently been widened and repaved. View the Sand Creek Trail Map (PDF) for more information.
