Checking out new and old trails

Went out for a cool, early December bike ride to check out the new bike trail that connects Lilydale park to the highway 52 bridge and great river bike paths. It's amazing. The 52 bridge takes me into the east side of downtown and a large network of bike trails in Mounds Park and the Phalen neighborhoods. (and from there out to Stillwater MN) Brand new trail continues east from 52 along the airport and breaks through the woods, connecting to the Great River Trail.
