I went for a walk! I enjoyed it! Would go back, it was just lackluster because the farmland around it.

It was okay had some cliffs but mostly flat land

It was a cold day for me but it's a easy walk. Great views of the structures and a waterfall. Grab a little brochure that tells you a bit about each stop. Great for historical learning.

Easy hike, interesting geology and history. Didn’t spend a whole lot of time as it was 13 degree wind chill!

Very beautiful trail. There is a fee of $7 per person.

Mowed prairie grass trail with a small "cascading" waterfall about half way through. Was led by a cute black and white Australian shepherd farm dog. Don't expect a lot but perhaps bring a journal and stop and enjoy the solitude for a moment.

easy to follow, good for any age, waterfall was nice at the end.

peace and Solitude at the waterfall area. Go in the morning where you can handle the no shade hike and enjoy the waterfall area without too many bugs. Lots of birds singing

Quite easy trail

Lots of ticks, trail is easy to follow. Grass is long on the trail and its hard to see holes in the ground. The waterfall is small, but decent.

It's was a great park! Very pretty! Has a nice lake, a handful of trails that are easy and not very long! Anyone can enjoy these trails

It's was a good little walk! It's paved sidewalks, very kid friendly! I would suggest doing it in the fall, when the leaves are changing colors!

Even in late fall the Dakota Prairie and the Camden History Trails were beautiful. The climb and descent were steep by Minnesota standards. And with lots of leaves on the trail, be sure to pick your feet up to avoid tripping over hidden roots and rocks on the descent. Really beautiful, at the interface of prairie and big woods.

The trail looked promising and we were able to take a lot of nice bird pictures in the Prarie leading up to the trail head. We were unable to go down the trail (June 12, 2016) because within 5 minutes of getting out of the car 2 of the 4 people in my party had ticks on their legs. We would try this trail again outside of tick season.

Nice walk through a saved prairie among the farmlands and towns. Many wildlife to see including, birds, mice, snakes and bison. a shame I felt like there should of been more land saved for this beautiful prairie.

This is a wide grass mowed path that goes from along Beaver Creek and then ascends gently to some Quartzite Bluffs. There are no trees on this trail so breezes blow freely and wide open horizons are your views. Wildflowers in this area add to interest. This little used new trail In new "Touch the Sky" prairie make this a solitude seekers paradise. @backpackerneil

This short trail is now one of my local favorites. Very low effort to get to the reward of a tranquil setting of the waterfalls. On the way a very wide variety of wildflowers will be your companions. @backpackerneil

This point to point trail goes along the spine of a hill so that you have 360 degree views in all directions. Bluestem prairie grass and wildflowers are the dominant vegetation while quartzite rock also dot the landscape. Very little used trail with lots of solitude. Trail has information kiosks which gives some detailed information on this special area on each end next to small grass parking area. I felt as though I was in a 'Prairie Wilderness' @backpackerneil

on Pipestone National Monument Trail

Beautiful scenary and definately worth the drive out to check it out. The trail was closed across the waterfall, so that made the trail twice as long by the time we circled back and did the other side.

Split Rock Creek SP is a great fee full service campground from tent to RV. It is located only about 6 miles from Pipestone National monument, a must see when you are in the area. Pipestone does not have camping facilities so this park is ideal place to stay when you are going to Pipestone. The park has a swim area, fishing, hiking trails. A nice Park, worth the stay.

Got stuck in Sioux Falls during a snow storm and took advantage of the situation and bought some snow shoes. Went to Blue Mounds and hiked 8 miles on trails there. The snow averaged about 18" on the flat. Great bluff views, tall grass prairie, buffalo herd, and a lot of deer. Their is a nice full service fee campground at the park and well rounded number of differant activities at the park. Well worth the visit. A park that is predominantly prairie is anything but boring. A winter visit was great.

Pipestone National Mon. is a great site to visit to understand our native american heritage. The site has a great visitior center with a superb introductory film, nice indian artifacts. The short paved trail leads to the working pipestone quarry and a neat special scenic area with a waterfall and nice rock formations, and restored prairie. The trails is not fully wheelchair accessible, but, one in a wheel chair can do the trail with some assistance. Well worth the trip. Their is an entry fee, but worth it.
