I took the Road King down to West River Parkway just south of Broadway Ave. There are lots of places to stop all along the river but I stopped at the park near Plymouth Ave N and West River Pkwy and walked around. It's small but there are some cool trails and bridges in the woods to discover.
I crossed over to the east side of the river and explored East River Parkway and South Mississippi River Blvd all the way down to MN-5 by Fort Snelling. I stopped and walked around Hidden Falls Regional Park but couldn't find the falls (hence the name, I guess). The pics below were taken around the University of Minnesota campus. I got some great pictures in front of the Weisman Art Museum and a few looking across the river back at Minneapolis.
