West River/James I Rice Parkways Trail Improvements

West River Parkway winds along the west bank of the Mississippi River from Portland Avenue to Minnehaha Park, and is part of the Grand Rounds Scenic Byway. It is a scenic drive that blends a natural habitat in an urban setting.

West River Parkway offers 7.24 miles of paved biking and walking/running trails.

A popular attraction on the west river bank is the Winchell Trail, a multi-segment hiking-only trail that threads its way below the bluff in the Mississippi River Gorge from Franklin Avenue south to 44th St.

Historical Profile: More information about this and other parks is included in Parks, Lakes, Trails and So Much More, a richly detailed account of the histories of Minneapolis’ renowned recreational system.
