I come in minnehaha all the time to walk my dog and I love it! The path down to the river is very nice with generally less people and nice views. The falls are beautiful of course, but may be crowded during summer time

Minnehaha Park is an excellent biking destination as well as a good walking, hiking, bicycling area. There are numerous pedal rentals and before you leave, grab some food at the Sea salt Eatery - it's the BEST!!

In the winter you will find the falls have turned to ice, yellow toned hues from the river and bluish ice from ground water that percolates out from both sides. It’s illegal and a tad dangerous to go down to the falls in winter, but...More
