Good fun trail. I love to take my hammock with me, and tie up over the bluff at the top.

Really gorgeous and rarely very busy. It’s a gem, so close to the Twin Cities.

went for a beautiful walk with a friend! the area was gorgeous and we went at the perfect time of day

I love this trail for running, walking, and snowshoeing. The wildlife is abundant- one snowy day I came upon an entire deer family (Buck, Doe, and 2 Fawns) sitting under the trees.

Really nice fall hike with my dog. Go there on a weekday in the morning to have the place to yourself and let dog Off-leash. The falls were very nice.

The directions to this trail are incorrect coordinates

The trail is beautiful but completely closed at 35w. It is under several feet of water and impassable. I am not sure why all trails doesn’t show the trail starting earlier since there are trailheads to the east which would allow longer hikes. You can see these on the map and access these between 77s and MOA off of old shakopee road.

Fun trail with great views

Awesome trail! Great hill and rewarding view at the top. Be warned that it is not accessible at this time, though, due to construction on Flying Cloud Drive.

Nice hike with beautiful fall color. We were able to do a loop rather than out and back. If you do the south trail to the bluff and then head toward the River there are stairs that go down and then you walk a trail along the river back to the trailhead.

Made the trek from the boat launch to the falls, 3.6 miles round trip, and did the 178 steps at the falls to the overlook! Absolutely stunning views both of the falls and the overlook!

So fun, took the hardest trail to the top and wasn't disappointed. Many trails to try will definetly be going back.

Nice park . Great trails for biking. If you bring a dog, check out the dog park in the middle of the park. Some great hiking for you and the pup in side it.

I really enjoyed this trail, great scenery and peaceful.

I don’t know if this was just a coincidence or if it happens all the time but I encountered several bikers and people with dogs that lacked common courtesy. Many bikers did not yell “on your left” or warn me in any way as they came up behind me and nearly knocked me over. Also came across two people with dogs not on a leash and the dogs came charging directly at me and my dog! Again, I don’t know if this is typical, but definitely got the impression that the people who frequent this trail think they own it and don’t have to show any respect to others who use it. Disappointing.

Good running trails

good short loop hike

Beautiful paved trail around the lake. Nice distance, approx 3.5 miles.

Not bad. Some steep areas up to falls over loose shale but not difficult at all. Nice views on the way up. Very crowded with tons of parent sherpas.everywhere. However it was Labor Day weekend so that definitely contributed to the crowded trails. Makes for a good short, family walk..

Well kept, easy to access, plenty of parking. I ended up just staying in the off leash dog area, which is contained by a fence and is huge.

Maybe I am biased since I live very close by and do this trail often. I like this trail a lot, goes next to one of the biggest off-leash,fenced dog walks. Good thing I like about this trail is that you can do the longer loop or the shorter loop depending on your mood! Has views and access to the creek

Great trail. My dog loved it too. You really cant get lost, all directions loop around back close to the parking lot.

This is my favorite trail in the MSP metro the 19 miles of this trail are beautiful.

Love to ride it, great scenery and easy going.

it's a decent trail, watch out for baby snakes along the way. in the summer, you'll be ganged up by mosquitoes
the worst part is there aren't enough signboards near the parking lots to get you started on a trail, so it's very confusing.
the trails themselves are good and peaceful, well maintained and mildly challenging

Awesome trails that had pretty good elevation gain over short distances. The Stinks (dog) was tuckered out toward the end. The “Big Woods” have a rich history that you can read about along the trails. I wish it was a longer hike but it was fun!

Great trail loop! I have used it for runs before as well

Nice paved path around the lake, perfect for a walk with the dog. The majority is tree-covered, which provides nice shade but may require bug spray depending on humidity, time of day, etc.
