Biking In and around Sanborn Park

Because Sanborn Park offers off-street parking, it can be a good starting point for a family bike ride. Sanborn’s paths connect to paths through Hollingsworth Park, which leads up to  Crystal Lake Regional Trail. From there you can connect to the Medicine Lake Regional Trail and the Rush Creek Regional Trail.
