Honeylocust Drive East Cannon River Trail Connection


The City of Northfield operates and maintains a robust sidewalk and trail system within the City. The system includes several miles of mixed-use trails, sidewalks, and bike lanes. The system is destination based allowing pedestrians to access the many schools, parks, and businesses with the City.

The City of Northfield continuously looks for opportunities to create new connections to the system allowing for more and better access. The City has developed the City of Northfield Pedestrian, Bike, and Trail System Plan to further detail long-range system improvements.


Creating a new trail from the East Cannon River Trail to Honeylocust Drive with a possible alternative trail option along Honeylocust Drive from the cul-de-sac to Highway 3.
