Easy to moderate hiking trails with lots of areas for rock climbing. It has two moderate trails connected to this trail that leads to the Interstate State park camp ground. Great views of the St. Croix river from many high elevations and overlooks as well as some areas close to the water level.

Wonderful trails! Horizon Rock and Meadow Valley (right across from Potholes) were our favorites.

Went to the park this fall. Great to have lunch on the cliffs. Is fun anytime off the year.

Lil ole St. Croix. I love this trail and have been on it my whole life. There is something for all ages here. Personally I like climbing just across the River in Taylors Falls. Over all I would definitely recommend a peak if you are in the area.

This is one of several trails within the Interstate Park in St Croix Falls, Wi. All of the trails combined might equal 8.9 miles but this one is less then 1 mile so don't feel as though you'll need to conquer all 9 miles. The views are exceptional, the trails are fairly rugged and well marked. There's no chance of getting lost here.

The trails here are well marked with not a lot of flat ground. Lots of rocks to climb, bluffs to look over, and expansive views of the river valley. This is a great day trip that I would recommend for just about anyone.
