I think I have walked every park and walkway in the Twin Cities during the last 10 years. My favorite walk is from Minnehaha Falls to Fort Snelling State Park then up the big hill through the old Fort, across the river on the walkway on Hwy 5, then North along River Road and down to the entrance to Hidden Falls Park, through Hidden Falls Park and up the old stone staircase by the Falls then North on River Road by the old Ford plant and cross over on Ford Parkway to get back to Minnehaha Falls Park. It's about 7 miles. If you ever want to meet me to do it just send me a note!! I've shown this route to many many people. It's also on the spark people "map" under Karinhanse (my old name)

Indian Mounds Park also has several miles of paved trails. It's a really interesting historical place that also allows for a nice day hike, picnic, bike ride, etc. Check it out!

Minnehaha falls and creek. That steep staircase is a great heart rate booster. The paths are so relaxing, along the creek!

If you want to live a happy life, tie it to a goal. Not to people or things.

Elm Creek Park Reserve in Maple Grove, if not too far for you, might be something you'd like...change of scenary etc.
It has 20 miles of trails within the park. There's a loop starting at the visitor center that may be about 5 miles or so.
The trails has a mixture of hills that makes your walking experience a pretty good workout so bring water. And when you're done, the visitor center has a nice variety of refreshments like soups, salads, sandwitches etc
On the another side of the park it has a nature center with dirt trails you could explore.too

Try downtown St Paul! I love it. Don't get down there nearly enough, but it is so cool to walk and look at all the old buildings and people! Otherwise, I'm walking in and out and about Lakeville. North Park has a great trail.
