Great trail, very busy, a little muddy, parking was hard to find, but beautiful fall colors!

Beautiful trail. Very busy and unfortunately it is currently partially closed. You can still see the falls and explore the area though.

Visiting Minnesota on a business trip had this recommended to me via someone in my training class. I was disappointed in the litter and vandalism but it is such a cute place. Definitely needs work! Pathways washed out so be careful if you’re trying to go all the way around. Don’t recommend it with small children. Especially the man made pathways some were loose and slanted I was afraid I’d slip into the water.

Very easy trail but A LOT of people. Not suited for ADA as there are parts of it that loops into the woods and require walking over roots. Cute small beach where kids can play. Waterfall is beautiful....but be prepared for a lot of people gathering for photos.

This is a very nice trail with a beautiful waterfall that’s a must see. Definitely a popular destination so not many quiet places if your looking for a quiet trail. But if your okay with the crowds when you go you’ll enjoy yourself.

Went on a Sunday night at 8:30, not too busy, great night, falls are worth it, 9 year old son loved it as did our pup.

Still kind of muddy in some parts but we completed the whole loop. It gets a little less crowded the closer you get to the Mississippi River.

Stopped to get some air and stretch out legs on a road trip. Walked around a bit, played at the park and took some pictures of the water.

Trail was nice but it was flooded and we couldn’t complete the loop.

The creek has overflowed so lots of debris, mud and standing water to traverse. Fun times! Get some.
