Hiking Minnesota (Pukite)

The Bluff lands of Southeast MN/Southwest WI are a gorgeous area but they are fairly limited with hiking opportunities (although there are plenty of places to canoe or kayak). I lived and worked in this region for a year and always appreciated finding a new place to hike. Caledonia is one of the oldest towns in Minnesota and it is a neat, historical area to visit. Nearby Beaver Creek Valley is a beautiful park with decent fishing. I only found myself wishing it was a little bigger. This particular trail is a quick summit of a moderate size bluff with decent views of the nearby farms and wooded hillsides. The trail is well maintained although it can be a little wet times. If you are in the area consider a drive up the Root River Vally through Houston, Lanesboro and Preston. There is state land here and some good recreational opportunities.
