Put this place on your list to visit when in St. Paul/Minneapolis. Beautiful park for walking and biking. Beautiful waterfalls for taking photos. Be sure to eat at the fish restaurant.

This is a historic, geologic, and scenic gem. The only true gorge on the entire Mississippi River is right there with a waterfalls, picnic facilities, paths, playgrounds, and some natural and geologic history.

Beautiful park, you can rent bikes, there are lots of trails. Waterfall is gorgeous, the only complaint I have it all of the writing/graffiti on the signs and in the bathroom, I guess you get that everywhere though

We stopped by to see the Falls. The lower viewing area was easy to get to, although it involves some stairs. Very pretty and worth the stop!

Beautiful park for hiking or biking. The real star is the falls. Picturesque, especially when fully flowing. Worth a visit--accessible from the train.

Such a pretty view! There was also many spots to take photos of the falls! There is also a place where you can get in the water. Also pet friendly.
