Checking out the new Gateway Trail detour was created by Doug Nelson
Being a dry and warm day, I biked the new Gateway Trail that opened today. It works! The detour is well marked with signs at each turn. Going east on the trail, you pass over the Century bridge, then you leave the trail and head east on 50th St N, the majority of which has shoulders. You pass under 694 and turn left on residential Heath Ave. A connector trail starts next to 5427 Heath. Careful -- this trail is old, narrow, and curvy, and leads a quarter mile to connect with the Gateway, where you can continue east. The total detour is about 1.7 miles off the trail, which adds maybe half a mile. Coming west on the trail you would just do this in reverse, of course. We need to get used to going this way because it will last for quite awhile.

The Hwy. 36/Hadley intersection is being reconstructed, which will block the trail for awhile. The Gateway detour map is on the DNR website under State Trails.
