DescriptionLake Harriet

Loading location information.


  • Lake Harriet is one of the local running meccas. A single loop of the Lake is 2.8 miles on the dedicated paved path. You can connect from Lake Harriet to several other dedicated paths, reserved for cycling and/or pedestrians (well-marked, and please don't run on the bike paths except in the dead of winter, when they are plowed and converted to "shared" paths). The pedestrian-only path can get very crowded, especially on weekends and good weather days - so plan accordingly (maybe not the best place to be running hard/fast intervals, for example).
