Cedar Lake Photos: As the sun rose in the early morning hours of August 20th, David Chilly started his day with his morning yoga routine on the 169-acre lake. Cedar Lake is located West of the city and is part of the Grand Rounds Scenic Byway connecting Theodore Wirth Park, Bde Maka Ska, and Lake of the Isles. The city lakes with their hiking trails and bike paths give people an escape from the bustling downtown and city life. A chance to unplug and enjoy a hike, fish, or swim during the warm summer days in Minnesota.
