Hike the beautiful well kept trail to Minnehaha Falls

Long or short hike to the falls if you know where to park. Beautiful setting along the water, still some frozen in March. crisp air, many out to enjoy the short falls.

A lovely park right in a metropolitan area. The falls are beautiful. In the spring they run heavy and lighten up as summer comes on. In the winter they freeze in amazing circle formations.

The Minnehaha Falls are a great place to take people visiting us. The waterfall is a treat and the walking trails are great. You can hike all the way to the Mississippi River. Eat at Sea Salt while you're there!

I try to get here at least once a year. It is a great park with great walking trails. The falls are nice and full in spring, if we've had enough snow or rain. I go here with friends who are sick of always going out to eat, or go here for a special walk with my Siberian Huskey.

This was a nice area to walk around in Minneapolis. The falls were beautiful, but everything was so brown yet. If we could have come over the spring or summer, I'm sure it would have been spectacular.

This is one of our favorite spots. The falls and trails around it are absolutely beautiful. We bike a lot and this is one of our common destination spots. There's tons picnic tables outside and also inside of the pavilion. The Sea Salt restaurant is pretty good too. Excellent food and decent beer selection. Be prepared for a long line... More

The Falls were beautiful and relaxing. The river winds through a peaceful park full of trees. Great place to bring a little lunch and take a walk.

I can't believe there's a waterfall in Minneapolis! We take everyone who visits us here and they're stunned too. It's great to bike to or there's plenty of parking if you need to drive. Sea Salt is a delicious stop and offers great seafood right in the park (sounds crazy but trust me).

This is an awesome experience , you will truly appreciate yourself..We had an incredible day strolling in the recreation center, halting to take a gander at the solidified water fall and the magnificence of the range Ideal for walking, trekking, or simply sitting if that is the way you roll. The Falls and the encompassing grounds are really astounding

We had a great day walking in the park, stopping to look at the frozen water fall and the beauty of the area.
