Some steep going, up and down, as the trail ascends for a tour to the bluff's plateau, which offers some splendid overlooks of the meandering Zumbro River, and descends into thickly-wooded valleys. Kruger Unit is maintained as a primitive use area, which means motorized vehicles are not allowed on the trails. Instead, the unit is one of the few in the Dorer State Forest geared specifically toward campers and hikers who can spend an easy day exploring the valleys and limestone bluffs that rise above meandering rivers. The unit has two short loops near the picnic grounds and a long loop around the upper plateau. Special attractions: Overlooks of the Zumbro River; wildlife-turkeys; and camping sites.
