Our high quality of life in St Cloud is due to all the wonderful features we have in the city. You can leave the theater and be along side the Mighty Mississippi fishing in under no time. It is easy to find happiness in St Cloud and to have fun in Central Minnesota. The Beaver Island Trail gives people who live here a long list of fun activities anytime of year.

Today we are going to share more of why this is such a special place. We love the area surrounding the Beaver Island Trail. People walk, run, jog, bike, and roller blade in the warm months. In the winter it is cross country skiing. Lots of homes are next to the trail making it a real selling and buying point for people who are moving in and out of the area. Many people relax and find happiness in St Cloud along the Beaver Island Trail.

Beaver Island Park has a trail head facility, managed by the St Cloud Parks Department, with restrooms, a picnic shelter, boat and canoe access, and lots of parking.

This time of year Beaver Island Trail is great to walk, you can see lots of small woodland creatures and if you like to bird watch, boy are you in luck! For birders happiness in St Cloud abounds. I have been told it is one of the top 3 places in the area for bird watching.

Happy adventures on the Beaver Island Trail

As I was taking the pictures of Beaver Island for today’s wonderful reasons to love St Cloud MN post I noticed many sets of fresh deer tracks on the paths leading to the river. The tracks were all along the interlocking web of foot paths that wind through the woods on the upper and lower river bank adjacent to the paved trail that is perfect for the bikers and in line skaters.

If I would get my 35mm out and carry it when I am walking the trail I would have had a photo of a red fox to add to this post too. As it is, with the digital, it takes just enough time to reset for a fox sitting on the boat landing to disappear into the woods. He is very fast. I have seen this little guy before and someday I will get his picture.

If you would like to be able to take a nature walk along the Mississippi over your lunch break than St Cloud might just be the perfect happy place for you to call home too.
