Description

The Minnehaha Creek Trail will take runners on a quick descent to the Mississippi River and along the final and fastest portion of Minnehaha Creek as it races to its terminus at the Mississippi River. This is a relaxed and beautiful run. During the spring, summer, and fall you may see a variety of wildlife from great blue herons to painted turtles along the creek.

Once in the river valley, the trail follows the flow of the creek until you hit the Mississippi. The trail down to the river has gradual elevation change and is not too strenuous in either direction. Take a few minutes at the wading area to get your feet wet. This part of the creek can move pretty quickly when the water levels are high so exercise caution as you cool off your feet. Once you are done enjoying the river and the views, either head back the way you came or connect with the MSPT for a longer outing.
