Fun trail right along the Minnesota river. The trail can be wet depending on the level of the river.
First time hiking/walking the trail. Loud because of HWY 169- which was a negative. Pretty views of the rivers. Wish there was more unpaved trails. May have seen some grass trails as I was pulling out of the parking lot. Will maybe bring a bike or rollerblades next time. Most likely will be back to explore and see more.
This trail is a nice little in and out. There are lots of birds and small animals along the way, also be as you get closer to the river there are some hawks.
