Redwood Falls Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"A shorter sibling to Ramsey Falls, and the town’s namesake, Redwood Falls cascades into a deep gorge just inside the park’s entrance, only steps from the parking area and trailhead. The Redwood River flows north and east from prairies and farmland into the valley carved originally by the great Glacial River Warren, now occupied by the Minnesota River. Redwood Falls is the central feature of the Redwood Cascades, a spirited stretch of river rapids in this large city park.

All told, the Redwood River drops 140 feet to the valley floor, much of its descent in regulated fashion at the hands of several dams (the largest of which was built in 1902 and currently plugs the river at Lake Redwood), which have produced hydroelectric power from the falling waters since 1897."
