Beautiful, relaxing

This is a fun place to go viewing with friends and family members. If you go on the trail below the falls, there is a nice trail with wooden walkways over the marshy parts. The trail is quite easy, but the rolling falls and the river is beautiful for the entire hike.

Great Trail! Recommend to ware decent shoes as some area's are a bit ruff due to rain.

the trail is good, but very poorly marked. it becomes difficult to navigate around the loop

Beautiful park with easy trails. Usually overcrowded on weekends.

The trail is beautiful and very green. It smells very fresh and the river that goes along the trail adds a very nice aesthetic affect. There are many places to take photos. There is a park prior to the trial that is very big and offers a great place to have a picnic. All in all, very highly recommend.

Easy peasy, just avoid the crowds of the weekend and holidays. Great cross town connector.

The steps are all still blocked off, so we only walked around the upper area. It's a beautiful scene though!

Great trail for running!

Very busy, but a nice easy hike with some good views.

Pretty views, but extremely busy at times.

It's so pleasant to hear the rushing water while you're walking!

Nice short loop.

This is an easy loop for sure. It's great when there's lots of water in Minnehaha creek as the falls are impressive then. I've only seen it then in photos, not in person. You walk to the end where the confluence of the creek meets the mighty Mississippi. The day I was there the flow was pretty low over the falls. But it was a nice walk in the fall and worth doing.

Love this park! lots of paved and grassy trails to use!

Great trail for biking, walkers have their own trail. Do this when I’m short on time and want to get an exercise ride in!

Very easy going and the view of the water was calming

Kids (5, 8, 13) loved this trail! Not too hard for the little guys, but long enough to wear them out ;) Well-maintained, lots of benches for resting, trash cans along the trail.

Wonderful trail. In great condition, well marked, nice views and stops on the way for a leisure bike ride. Highly recommend!

Several hiking/snowshoeing trails that are unpaved. They are really well maintained and offers beautiful sights.

This is one of my favorites to do with or without kids. It's an easy loop with lots of views of the creek and eventually the Mississippi. The only downside is it's often crowded. But worth the walk anyway. Falls are beautiful.

I love this trail. You get river shore, waterfalls, a restaurant, historical sites - it literally has everything. If you're tempted to turn around at the gum tree, don't! Only downfall of this park is how popular it is at ALL times of the day and week/weekend.

A good place to get out. Good trails and clearly marked maps on trails. Lots of different ways you can take and switch up your rout.

Great escape from the city-life. Lots of dog watching. But can get very crowded.

Beautiful location. Lots of trails (paved and unpaved)
