  • Let me start by saying if I just had a chair close to the window of the bird feeders, I would probably back my lunch and stay there all day! This is probably my 4th or 5th time here. We travel from GB...  more »

  • Had a great 14 mile trail ride. It's pretty flat and not super technical but not boring either where we road. No bathrooms in site though :)

  • We walk these trails and look out onto the Minnesota River. We have walked the trails under the Cedar Avenue Bridge and watched deer, and water fowl. We came along a Canadian Goose and a duck together. The pair seemed to believe they were guarding a nest.That was an unusual friendship and sight. I also came across what I believe to a very large wolf print, of course the print may have been left by a dog, except it was the only print. It went off the trail and we didn't find a match anywhere else on trail. It made for an interesting hike. I was really watching the area for movement!
  • Beautiful hikes, bird watching and outstanding Visitor Center. Comfortable, modern building with plenty of parking and ready access from Interstate 494 & 34th Avenue.
  • Lots to do here. Hiking and mountain biking.
  • beautiful place to explore and hike through!
  • The trails are horribly marked. My wife and I got lost many times and had to back track. We ended up walking over 10 miles. We just barely made it out before dark. We almost had to stop and call for someone to get us. Have you ever heard of trail groomers? One of the trails had 4 foot high weeds. We had to guess where the trail was. How about putting in some benches? Worst experience of my life.
