“Great Hiking”
Reviewed July 2, 2012

Very good hiking trails close to the twin cities but far enough away to enjoy a nice walk.Backpack camping is availible but it would be a rough hike up to it unless you travel light. I prefer the camper cabins.

“Great For the nature Lover”
Reviewed June 20, 2012

Nice and quiet. Minimum Facilities.. There are a couple group sites that are distanced from each other. Early summer is the best time to go.
