Indian Mounds Park / Bruce Vento Nature Sanctuary Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Established in 1893, Indian Mounds Park is one of the oldest parks in St. Paul. The park’s name comes from the American Indian burial mounds that were found here by early settlers. These included 2,000-year-old Hopewell mounds, while others were constructed by the Dakota much later. Originally, there were 36 mounds in the park, but due to shortsighted construction projects and vandalism, only 6 remain.

Pack a lunch—you won’t find anywhere to buy food along this route, but you will find plenty of scenic places to stop and have a picnic. For more in-depth background on the park and its fascinating history, give a ranger a call at 877-7271172, ext. 11, to listen to a recording about the area."
