For a quiet, relaxing time, hike the cool woodland trail which meanders along the tranquil Des Moines River, or enjoy the view of the river valley from Dinosaur Ridge Overlook. You'll find pleasant surprises as you explore small creeks, prairie grasslands, and oak savannas. Visitors enjoy camping, canoeing, fishing, picnicking and hiking.

Always quiet, if your not from the area its definitely worth the stop, a chance to see southern Minnesota at its finest.

I loved walking this trail along the river. Very quiet and not one person out there. Saw lots of deer and a beautiful sunset on Dinosaur Ridge.

I frequently walk this-Absolutely beautiful in the fall. The river is pretty also!
