Minneapolis’ East Bank stairways lead to quiet riverside solitude

The river in this part of the city can seem almost subterranean, separated and buffered from the flat, gridded, concrete expanses of southeast Minneapolis above it by sheer wooded bluffs. Descending the stairways, one gets the sense of traveling underground. The path down by the river is, on a Sunday morning, almost wholly deserted, and the roar of vehicular traffic over Franklin and 94 sound like it’s coming from some distant point overheard.

    Always meant to take this trail one day all those years I lived in the cities and never did, so I’m glad to see it...
