The Mississippi River Trail will be a paved trail that will eventually connect South St Paul and Hastings. The trail is intended for non-motorized uses such as hiking, biking and in-line skating. A trailhead will be constructed off of 111th Street E along the Pine Bend Bluffs section of the trail this year. The trailhead will consist of a restroom building, parking lot, landscaping and other amenities such as picnic tables and bicycle racks.
In addition to the trailhead construction, 111th Street E will be reconstructed and paved between Courthouse Boulevard and the new trailhead.
