Hidden Falls Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"Hidden Falls Regional Park, part of St. Paul’s park system since 1887, is a narrow ribbon of river flats, lowland, and dense woods along the shallow banks of the Mississippi River. Flanked by high, rugged bluffs on one side and Old Man River on the other, the park is a favorite for picnics, fishing, and bicycling or hiking the 7 miles of paved trails. There is also a maze of dirt footpaths sneaking through the woods, great for exploring and the chance to capture a little seclusion in the heart of a big city.
Concealed in one of the creases in the bluff at the park’s northern entrance is the small waterfall after which the park is named. Easily reached by way of the grassy path adjacent to the picnic pavilion, Hidden Falls is a wonderful treat in St. Paul’s grand parks system."
