There is a great walking path near the Falls... and the Falls, themselves, are a nice sight. It doesn't take long, but they are worth viewing.

Hidden waterfall in Hastings MN. Located in a park near in the back along the trailhead. You would not see it just driving by. It is actually a rather large fall and due to busy winter it is flowing fast and steady.

A nice tucked away gem, for a nice walk that makes you feel you are not in the center of town. Beautiful little water fall.

Tucked in behind the main thoroughfare, quite a surprise to find these falls. Access nearer the edges of the river require some care...would be easy to slip. You can continue on various paths and for quite a ways to cross bridges, find old mill locations,...More

It was great to hear the waterfall and be surrounded by lush greenery and a place to relax meditate and just de-stress yourself

Beautiful falls in a surprising location. The surrounding park made for a great morning hike. We would have loved to have had more information on this falls and the building next door. There is clearly history there but nothing within the park to denote it.

Amazing to see and hear with the large water volume on the day of visit. After a very short walk from the parking area the viewing platforms and trail give excellent views. Located right off the main highway in Hastings, MN.

If you don't have a car available Applebee's is across the street and you can walk under the bridge. We stayed at the hotel next to Applebee's and walked to the falls.

It used to be owned by ConAgra. I don't know if it still is but up until recently it was owned by them. I know it is still in use.
