This is a great park to visit at any point in the year. Spring and Fall are my favorites but winter has a beauty here that is great. Easy trip from the Twin Cities for the day .

The trails were fairly easy except for the bluffs trail. The glacier potholes were very neat. The mosquitoes were pretty bad so I would recommend carrying along some big spray but overall a great day.

I would call the interpretative center before going. Spring can be a time of fluid change. They can tell what is blooming and if the snow has melted.
