Three Rivers Park District is kicking off a master planning process for a new north-south regional trail through central Hennepin County. Identified as the Eagle to Bryant Lake Regional Trail, the planning process for this 16-mile-long corridor is beginning this summer.

The trail is envisioned to connect the communities of Maple Grove, Plymouth, Minnetonka and Eden Prairie and may include future extensions to Elm Creek Park Reserve to the north and the Carver County Regional Trail System to the southwest.

The Eagle to Bryant Lake Regional Trail will be a 10-foot wide, paved, multi-use trail supporting biking, hiking, dog-walking, running and in-line skating. The route will be selected to connect areas of high natural resource value, local parks or trails, and other planned or existing regional trails when feasible.

Three Rivers will be primarily responsible for all costs related to acquisition, development and construction as well as future operational and maintenance costs for the regional trail.

Public and City Partner Engagement

In 2019 Three Rivers worked with the focus cities to obtain public input at 12 events and identify the proposed trail route between French and Bryant Lake regional parks. Three Rivers will build upon this work and balance future engagement efforts between residents and businesses along the proposed route and adjacent communities.

Check back in late September for opportunities to provide your feedback about the project.
