Our neighbor was was asking us if we had ever taken the trail that runs along the river on the Saint Paul Boulevard side. We said we had taken the trail on the other side but we didn’t know there was one on the east side. We parked at the north end of the zoo and headed through the woods down to the river. This is near where serial killer, Arthur Shawcross did his thing and the trail is a little forlorn but it is beautiful. We didn’t make it down to the lake but we had some stunning views of the river valley. It still looks pretty much the way it must have to the native Americans.
