Dry Run Creek Bike Path


Dry Run Creek Bike and Walking Path began as a 3 mile path beginning at Burr Street and ending at Minnesota. A Community Bike Path Development Committee has been making efforts at expanding the trail for several years, and the path now winds through a beautiful nature area in Dry Run Creek, along the scenic highway bypass past Cadwell Sports Complex, and out to Lake Mitchell along Cemetery Road and along the beautiful Lakeview Golf Course, intersecting at Ohlman Street. Future Bike Trail Phases will take the trail around the lake past the New Pepsi Cola Soccer Complex, through the City, and along the nature areas to the East, as well as along the natural areas along the Dakota Rail on the southwest side of the lake. A Bike Trail Map (PDF) and brochure is available at the Parks and Recreation Offices, as well as online.
