Park Description

This hiking and biking trail system winds along the St. Louis River from S 63rd Ave W in Irving to Spring Street in the Riverside neighborhood. In 2019, the trail was renamed from The Western Waterfront Trail to Waabizheshikana or "The Marten Trail" in Anishinaabe, in honor of the Marten Clan that settled in this part of the St. Louis River.
