Loppet Foundation

Luminary Loppet

There is no one plan for parking and transportation for Luminary Loppet participants. Instead, there are a number of options.

Park around Lake of the Isles

Luminary Loppet participants may park on streets around Lake of the Isles. (Note that packet pickup tents will be located around Lake of the Isles and participants may pick up their glow sticks at any of the tents.)

Uptown Parking

Luminary Loppet participants can park in Uptown and walk down the Mall to the Lagoon area where there will be a packet pickup tent

Metro Transit

Luminary Loppet participants can take Metro Transit buses to the events.

Shuttle Bus

Luminary Loppet participants can take a free shuttle bus from either Optum Health in Golden Valley or the Walker Library in Uptown to Loppet Village at Lake Calhoun Center.

  • Optum Health Parking Lot: 6300 Minnesota 55, Golden Valley, MN 55427
  • Uptown Shuttle from Walker Library: 2880 Hennepin Ave, Minneapolis, MN 55408

Note that with this option participants will need to ski, snowshoe or walk from Loppet Village to Lake of the Isles, where the Luminary Loppet is centered.
