this trail is amazing! I've been going here since I was a child. The park has so much to offer. There's also cave tours the third Sunday of every month :)

so pretty. swimmimg for summer, fall is perfect. always a go to with all 3 kids.

Easy trail and nice area. You have to watch out for all the stray cats having orgies. You will hear them before you see them. It’s kinda weird when they get the turtles involved. Fun to watch.

Great hike

Started at J and went 3 miles in then back. Lots of ups and downs but nothing too steep. Good workout in the snow. Not great parking for cars in winter (I may or may not have gotten stuck in the snow lol) take a truck or SUV. No one else on the trail. Very quiet. Well marked for the most part which is great cause it was all under snow!

Easy, short trail. It is nice and has some great views, but not much challenge and can get crowded from time to time. Very nice for walking your dog or for some secluded exercise.

Very nice secluded trail. One of the better trails if you don’t want a crowd but still very well maintained. Very cool views. Elevation changes a little bit which can be challenging at the end.

Really nice fall hike with my dog. Go there on a weekday in the morning to have the place to yourself and let dog Off-leash. The falls were very nice.

Walked it many times. Some ups but great.

Good biking trail

Beautiful park and trails are very well marked! Some trails were a little muddy, but to be expected considering the wet season we've had. Beware of ticks!

loved this place! east bluff trail was great and the Devils Doorway was awesome!

Made the trek from the boat launch to the falls, 3.6 miles round trip, and did the 178 steps at the falls to the overlook! Absolutely stunning views both of the falls and the overlook!

Decidedly decent bit of Midwestern hiking. Criss-crosses an ATV trail, but only saw an oncoming vehicle once. There are two campsites with fire pits but no latrines, on Chain and Bus lakes. Chain Lake's sites are prettier; the one on Bus Lake is also a drive-in. Saw grouse, ducks, frogs and mushrooms galore. The foliage the first weekend of October was absolutely gorgeous, and we were the only hikers on the trail. A very pleasant long walk in the woods.

Bring bug spray, beach is rocky.

great well kept trail and the overlook shelter is a great place to watch the sunset over Minnnesota's hills. the history of the trail, knowing it was built by young men by hand during the great depression to help support their families make the stone staircases and shelter an engineering marvel

Definitely nice scenery and plenty of options in terms of trails to switch around on. I wouldn't consider the trails to be hard though, maybe intermediate. overall it's a nice place.

This Park is awesome. There is more Hiking than is displayed in the description. We hiked 5 miles comprised of Hiking and biking paths. The scenery is beautiful with, what appears to be, invasive plant management. Some trails are flat, some rolling and some more steep.

The Park offers a ton of amenities - hiking, biking, volleyball, fishing and even a place to get beer and brats.

They’re restoring the creek, which was nice to see.

A scenic trail along the lakefront. It is fairly easy to lose the trail but given the size of the park, you won’t be lost for long.

Beautiful trail with some decent uphill treks and changes in the flora and fauna depending on how high up you go. Great informative signs and easy trail to follow. Encountered several downed trees 2 of which my husband cleared enough for us to continue on the path! Worth the extra effort!

Park at trailhead, look at the map, grab a paper map or they are empty take a cell phone picture. Trails are well marked once you find them. Only hard thing is the map doesn't mark the start and end of the trail, they are one way and would be nice to see the start marked on the map. Really fun single track, great workout. Downside is not a lot of big speed long downhill stuff.

I loved the path this trail took around the lake. The viewpoints were beautiful. The cool air was refreshing. The trail was beautiful.
Unfortunately, the path is being paved over so it can be hard on the knees and ankles. Also, the trail does not allow overnight campers so allow time and energy to do it in one day. Also there were $41 in camp and park entrance fees. In addition to all that, the trail and campsite were crowded with loud families. I expected this loop to feel more like a backpacking trip and less like a family vacation tourist trap.

I suppose I should have researched more.

Good hike. Lots of trails branching off the main ones. Worn paths with quite a few overgrown areas. As long as you stay on the path that looks the most worn and widest, you'll be able to complete it accurately. Took us just over an hour to do. We tracked this as just under 4 miles.

I have done this hike twice and both times it was amazing! The rocky steps on the East Bluff are a little tricky to go up, but it is definitely doable for the average person. I can’t wait to come back!
