Other hikes are spider-web networks that remind one of well-used deer trails. Some are isolated within a pocket of greenery surrounded by vast ribbons of freeway concrete and broad subdivisions. Others are woven within the fabric of parklands so expansive that you could literally spend weeks hiking all the networks lying within their folds. Twin Cities' hiking is huge so get the guide that gets you there and back. Updated maps, new hikes, new photos, and brand-new trailhead coordinates make this authoritative guide even more useful than before.
