Had an amazingly beautiful ski today. Trail was groomed perfectly after our big snow.

I would come back! Campers very friendly, camp site is watched. Didn't see any animals or birds during our hiking. I love the woods.

Visited in winter. Kid friendly. Quiet get away from city noises.

A small park that has a nice short loop along the river that I use for trail running loops or nice park to bring a dog for a walk, or just a nice hike through the woods, I also use for cross country skiing, but is not groomed.

Nice trail. elevation change is not too difficult. could be muddy. snow and ice on the trail now.

These trails are gorgeous but most of these trails are only for mountain biking. If you want to hike here, for your own saftey, check the trail maps.

The trail is pretty steep as far as trails in the Midwest go. It's beautiful at the top, your staring at two different countries and the largest freshwater lake in the world, how can you beat that?! For less experienced hikers I would advise to just take your time, it's not that bad.

This was an awesome hike for winter, if you walked inside the actual gorge. The river is mostly frozen over and provides a completely different kind of hike. It wasn’t a hard hike, but wasn’t for the faint of heart as sometimes as you could see the water flowing under the ice. Wearing ice cleats helped a lot too.

We went snowshoeing (you can also hike or cc ski) through the Ogantz trail in Jay Cooke state park. Most of the trail went along the river with some beautiful overlooks while the last of the loop went through the rolling woods. Trail varied from easy to moderate.

Very serene and relaxing walking trails that meander through woods and prairies. Also, has a nice lake. Great place to contemplate and meditate.

Very nice urban (small town) trail. Dog friendly. I have hiked often in spring summer fall and XC skied in winter. It is a GREAT trail-running trail. Also allows MTBs. Never did that there but many do.

Mostly prairie with some hardwood forest. Nice overlooks of Red Wing. This is NOT wilderness. Easy access from town. Free parking no user fee required.

Recommendation: it’s about one hour from Twin Cities right in Red Wing so easy for one day get away... short drive, nice run or bike, then lots of options afterward in town for pub grub before returning home. Or picnic right at trail head (Memorial Park). Fun one-day get-away possibilities.

Great hike. Some steep ups and downs, but you're rewarded with nice overlooks.

Great hike for kids. Nice flat trail. Pretty views along the river. We hiked it Black Friday this year.

The bridge is out indefinitely while the SHTA raises funds to build a new bridge. This is still true as of December 2017. Check for updates on shta.org.

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.
