Minnesota has an abundance of natural areas and MN State Parks that offer a wide variety of scenery that will take your breath away.

Theodore Wirth State Park is full of incredible experiences. From disc golf to biking and hiking, there is no shortage of exciting things to do at this park. Lebanon Hills Regional Park is located south of the Twin Cities and is full of incredible hiking as well as lakefront areas that are perfect for taking a dip to cool off during your hikes. The trails at Lebanon Hills are also fantastic for cross country skiing and snowshoeing during the winter months. For shorter hikes, head to the city of Richfield to the Wood Lake Nature Center.

When it comes to hiking trails in Minneapolis and the St Paul area that are nearby our cabins in Minnesota, there are far too many to list. A couple of our Twin Cities favorites are loops such as Battle Creek Loop and Jensen Lake Trail. Both of these trails are just over 2 miles long and are great for any level of experience. Enjoy waterfront views on Jensen Lake Trail as it loops around the water’s edge in a full circle. Battle Creek Loop is known for being family-friendly as well as dog-friendly so that you can take your four-legged friend along on a leash for an outing everyone can enjoy together.
