Stopped by here for an evening walk and was super delighted by this little gem. This is a multi-use area, which is set up for skiing and hiking. There's a sliding hill that seems like it would be super awesome in the winter, and about...More

We were only 3 thankfully because it was a busy day. The hill is mostly smooth. A few bumps here and there. My 1st experience here, so maybe the bumps were for an added thrill.

I have been sledding at Shingnobee Hill many times and it is very fun but also rather dangerous. I have seen many people get hurt while sledding (mainly broken noses). I would not recommend Shingnobee Hill to anyone going with children younger than 10. Personally...More

Beautiful hiking trail, but more prairie than woods so it got hot even when it was only 70 degrees. Lots of ticks--we must have pulled 15 off of us plus at least that many off the dog! There were many options for routes, so take...More

There is a great sledding hill and provides a lot of fun and winter exercise. Be sure to be careful. I have personally gotten pretty injured on this hill.

We drove along Shingobee Island road. It is a very beautiful area. Stopped at an access area just before getting back on the highway and took a couple of pictures. If you time, just take a leisurely ride through here if nothing else.

There is something really magical about this scenic area. We love the view. I have snowshoed here and the trails are excellent and scenic. Awesome place.

Look for the road sign to find this hill. It's easy to miss. There are two hills-- a long mild one to the right and then a steep one straight in front. Although the images don't make it look frightening, this is the kind of...More
