Grand oaks and delicate prairie flowers grace the rugged, rolling landscape of this park. Trails traverse remnant and restored prairies, wind down deep ravines and rise up to the grassy ridgetops and bluffs overlooking the scenic St. Croix River. The trails are perfect for hikers, horseback riders and cross-country skiers. The park offers visitors a swimming beach, backpack campsites and a visitor center with interpretive displays.

One of the best trails in the area. Being from the PNW and living in MN was difficult but this park/trail helped cope. Would go here all the time to trail run, hike and even introduced the kids to backpacking here.

You have a lot of options here, some paved, some natural. The Deer trail is very wooded and lovely. My big complain is the ridiculous trail marking. Not well marked. Almost every sign has different info and the map is different as well.
