Fun trail with great views

Somewhat rocky and uneven ground. Beautiful scenery along the river!

Bubbling brooks, deep woods, beautiful overlooks, breathtaking in Autumn

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.

Truly beautiful hiking area. There are some areas that are busy with people and some that are more quiet. Be a responsible pet parent and only bring your dog if they are good around lots people and other dogs. Bring your own water, no fountains.

Great hike take plenty of water and keep more at the car for when you finish. be ready to get muddy

Not much of a view as the rain came about half way into the hike. Other than that, its a nice intermediate trail to the Koolau as always.

If you cant find parking or denied access for some reason, try starting from Niu valley at the end of Anolani St.

Lovely area but super flooded right now

Agree with the other posters that I wouldn’t classify it as easy. A decent amount of steep inclines and steps. Beautiful though.

Great hike, but I wouldn’t rate it as Easy. It should be rated Moderate. Follow signs for “Hiking Club”, otherwise Trail is not always well marked. Can get to some beautiful river views from the trail. Will definitely go back!

Many caves to visit , quick tip bring flashlights and head gear if you plan on adventuring inside the caves:)

Loves following the trails. There are beautiful scenic overlooks to see the fall leaves and the trails can take you right down to the river and even a couple creeks. Also a very good area to go off of the trails and explore as well

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

Beautiful park!! Well maintained

Trail in great condition. Wonderful views of harbor and some terrific time in woods. Going beyond the SHTA Loop Trail brings in a very nice hike along a creek gorge.

Fun trail! Fountain to lanesboro is mostly downhill. Nice easy ride!

Great for trail running. It's a flat hike. some really petty parts through the woods. Definitely not 3.3 miles. More like 6 miles. I will be back

It’s open for 2018!!! New trails, steps, lights, bridges and boardwalks. Soooooo nice! Breathe in nature and bring a friend. Very family friendly!

Heard gunshots in the distance even though it’s a conservation area. Be careful.. Nice and short- some abrupt steep hills.

First time on the loop. Beautiful views of city and fun trail!!

Love to ride it, great scenery and easy going.

Very nice trail for biking! Beautiful scenery, lots of trees and some open spots to view the surrounding country side. Real easy trail.

Pretty heavily trafficked

The hiking club trail and waterfall trail were awesome! On the map online, it showed that you could get to a trail that went right along the Minnesota river. The online map is wrong. Use the maps at the park. We tried getting to the river trail and went almost 2 miles through mud, fallen trees, and wet ground before we gave up. It was a great adventure but not an easy one!

First part is very pretty

Easy, simple hike.

Nice flat, paved trail and shaded most of the way. I rode from Faribault to Waterville on this trail and it’s was a fun ride! Somewhat scenic with the lakes near the trail too. My goal is to ride this trail from Faribault to Mankato one way, 40 miles approximately

Nice easy hike. Our small dog made the whole trip from the campground up to the 5th falls with no problem. Some steep spots that were muddy and slick. The trail by the upper falls gets very close to the edge in some areas, so it can get a little scary if you're not into heights. Definitely watch your kids if you go to the upper falls! Overall a great hike!

Beautiful area. Much larger than expected.
Upkeep of the trails leaves something to be desired. A lot of it was overgrown and some trails that show on the map are not accessible due to it being overgrown. The trail signs are a bit difficult to know how far and what direction it will truly be going unless you are looking at a map.
Due to flooding a very large section of trail is under water and not accessible at this current time.
A lot of nature to see. Beautiful fields, forest area and the lake. Some of the swamp area was mucky and a bit hard to navigate.
Overall a great trail, not many visitors. So very peaceful. Plan ahead to carry any trash you have as there were no trash bins in the area.
