  • Excellent, year round family fun center in Rochester, MN, offering hiking, cross country skiing, biking, nature observance, and more.

  • Great trails for hiking, biking, and cross country skiing. Awesome nature center with giant fresh water aquarium with lots of local fish. Also great events year round. Love the cross country skiing events!
