Located on a former railroad grade adjacent to US Highway 61 between County Highway 8 in Hugo, Minnesota and the Washington/Chisago County Line in Forest Lake, Minnesota.

The Hardwood Creek Regional Trail is a 9.5 mile multiple-use trail in northwestern Washington County. The trail consists of two parallel trails which run adjacent to State Highway 61, from County Road 8 (Frenchman Road) in Hugo to the Washington/Chisago County Line in Forest Lake. The paved portion is for bikers, hikers, and in-line skaters (no cross-country skiing). The turf portion is for horses in the summer and snowmobiles in the winter. (Please note that snowmobiles with metal traction devices (studs) are not allowed anywhere in the trail corridor.)

The trail is located on a former Burlington Northern Railroad grade which is very level and wheelchair accessible. Hardwood Creek Regional Trail provides access to local trails and businesses, and to the Sunrise Prairie Trail in Chisago County (which extends to North Branch, Minnesota). The trail takes visitors through new residential areas, natural areas, and the commercial areas of Hugo and Forest Lake, each containing interesting small shops and restaurants.
