Minnetrista is a city in Hennepin and Carver counties in the U.S. state of Minnesota. The name Minnetrista is said to owe its origin to the Dakota language, in which minne means "water" and trista means "crooked." The city is generally rural and still has material agricultural activity, involving corn, beans, hay and horses. The city can be described as on or near the boundary between the suburbs and rural areas, and it faces pressure in favor of and against development. Local politics often involve that question. The population was 6,384 at the 2010 census. Crown College is situated along Minnetrista's southern boundary.GeographyAccording to the United States Census Bureau, the city has a total area of 30.76sqmi, of which 25.82sqmi is land and 4.94sqmi is water. The city is almost entirely in Hennepin County. County Roads 15, 44, and 110 are three of its main routes.Lakes in Minnetrista include Whaletail Lake, Little Long Lake, Mud Lake, Ox Yoke Lake, and Saunders Lake, as well as several bays of Lake Minnetonka. Six Mile Creek runs through the western part of the city and brings the runoff from about 17000acre to Lake Minnetonka. In 2005, the Minnetrista City Council began referring to this creek as a marsh. One possible reason they did so is that in general, cities can regulate marshes, but not creeks and rivers. At that time, there was also a discussion about limiting docks within the city along Six Mile Creek. Docks with Lake Minnetonka access can be highly valued.To personalize your trip to Minnetrista, create itinerary details specific to you using our United States attractions website .
