Burnsville Trails System

The City of Burnsville provides miles and miles of trails for walking, rollerblading, mountain biking and cross-country skiing.

Trail Master Plan

A Trail Master Plan, developed in 1999, serves as a guide for future trail development. From scenic trails around waterways and through the woods to community trails connecting schools and parks, the City of Burnsville Trails System strives to serve the current and future needs of the community.
