A storm had rolled through when we went in July and closed part of the trail. It was still worth it and unique. Check out the video at the visitor center to really appreciate its history.

Trail is well marked and the colorful rocks are beautiful!

Had to double check that the bridge wasn’t flooded. Very little shade. The workers were doing an amazing job at keeping the trails clear.

It was a cold day for me but it's a easy walk. Great views of the structures and a waterfall. Grab a little brochure that tells you a bit about each stop. Great for historical learning.

Easy hike, interesting geology and history. Didn’t spend a whole lot of time as it was 13 degree wind chill!

Very beautiful trail. There is a fee of $7 per person.

Quite easy trail

It's was a good little walk! It's paved sidewalks, very kid friendly! I would suggest doing it in the fall, when the leaves are changing colors!

Beautiful scenary and definately worth the drive out to check it out. The trail was closed across the waterfall, so that made the trail twice as long by the time we circled back and did the other side.

Pipestone National Mon. is a great site to visit to understand our native american heritage. The site has a great visitior center with a superb introductory film, nice indian artifacts. The short paved trail leads to the working pipestone quarry and a neat special scenic area with a waterfall and nice rock formations, and restored prairie. The trails is not fully wheelchair accessible, but, one in a wheel chair can do the trail with some assistance. Well worth the trip. Their is an entry fee, but worth it.
