Nelson Farm trail is a point to point trail in Willow River State Park. This trail is demanding in some parts with hills that are fairly steep. It is on the North side of Willow River and goes from near the waterfalls to the Bridge on the West side of the park. A wide graveled trail that is well maintained.

The Nelson Farm trail starts off very flat through beautiful plains. The hills are what I would call severe, not moderate, so be careful on that. The falls are beautiful but FULL of kids so it's not a relaxing experience. We saw many snakes and even a rattler so watch the ground

Nice long walk out to cool refreshing falls, the day we went was a time crunch and we only walked to the falls and back. Definitely want to go back and do more! It can be crowded in the summer months when lots of people are camping but the trails are wide and spacious for everyone to walk.

It was very crowded in the summer time, however the trails that lead above the falls are much more private and calm. Overall beautiful park, definitely will come back!

Worth the trip from the twin cities. Great area for picnicking. Tons of space. The falls area had a lot of people but it didn't feel crowded. Even on a perfect Saturday afternoon. The trail itself did have a lot of people on it so if you're looking for peace and quiet, this may not be a guest pick for that. The falls were awesome. We'd definitely go back!
