Less than half an hour from Saint Paul, Afton State Park is proof positive that you don’t have to travel far to get away. Across 20 miles of trails, you’ll find everything from rugged climbs up steep ravines and along river bluffs to gentle strolls through prairie and oak savanna. When you’ve worn yourself out, head down to the long, slender beach to look out on the beautiful Saint Croix River and relax. Combining a variety of landscapes, spectacular views, and wildlife, Afton is a hiker’s heaven.
