Once completed, Mississippi River Trail (MRT) will extend 27 miles along the Mississippi River from St. Paul to Hastings, providing scenic views of the river and connections to local parks and trails and other community destinations. The trail will be paved and is intended for non-motorized uses such as walking, bicycling and in-line skating.
