 Park Info

Woodland Trails Regional Park is a 427-acre park with dense woods, prairies, and wetlands. It is the crown jewel of the Elk River Park system. It is a magnificent place to visit, any time of the year. In 2020 a new archery range and nature play area were added.

Woodland Trails Regional Park includes the Great Northern Trail, a 4.75 mile paved regional trail that begins at County Road 1 and runs through the park before continuing north to the city corporate limit. In 2015 the park expanded to include the 32-acre Big Tooth Ridge Park following the recommendation from the city Parks and Recreation Commission.

Woodland Trails Regional Park officially became a regional park August 2016. Check out this article.

The main access is located east of County Road 1 just north of the Elk River Country Club.

The park also abuts County Road 33 to the north and Proctor Avenue to the east.
