This park just across the St. Croix River from the Twin Cities sits on top of bluffs with beautiful views overlooking the Kinnickinnic and St. Croix River Valleys. Here you can hike trails of varying difficulty, a swim at a sandy beach, and cross country ski or sled in the winter. There are no campgrounds available in the park, but the park is less than 8 miles from Hudson, WI which has plenty of lodging options.
Each trail is named with a color corresponding with a route on the map and markings on poles at intersections to help you navigate. Even the most difficult trails are relatively easy. The Black Trail is a paved path heading down a steep hill to the beach on the St. Croix River. The Green and Yellow Trails travel through a dry prairie and are flat and easy trails. The Pink Trail (commonly known as the Hidden Falls Trail) is the most adventurous feeling trail in the park and includes varied prairie and forest scenery (but no prominent waterfall, surprisingly).
