Well-kept, oft-trodden trails are accessible for all ages. The falls are close to parking and can be viewed without having to walk far. There are stairs that lead down to the bottom of the falls, and a sturdy and wide walking bridge to view them...More

After many a visit to the twin cities, finally made it to the falls. An amazing view with such easy access. The ice-cream shop nearby is not to be missed... 😂. It's not to missed a whole. Well worth it!

This park is beautiful! It's a great place to take a walk and forget that you are still actually in the city. There are great paths, waterfalls, stone bridges, historical buildings, and places to eat. It's definitely worth a stop, bring a camera.

Take your camera and make sure you take the trail down to the base of the falls. Also follow the trail as it winds along the river to where is connects with the Mississippi.

This park is spacious and near the falls. There is a bit of history and several monuments to view and benches to rest.

A wonderful place to spend a weekend day - family-friendly, beautiful, and spacious. The waterfall is the icing on the cake. Highly recommend Sea Salt restaurant - but be prepared to stand in line. It’s worth it.

Minnehaha Falls is one of my favorite places in Minneapolis. It’s a great mix of the city and nature and a great place to get away from the busy day-to-day life. It can get a bit busy at the main areas, especially summer afternoons, but...More

I enjoy walking along Minnehaha Creek as it winds it's way down a falls and then through gorge until it meets the mighty Mississippi River. Sea Salt is located in the middle of the park and has great fresh sea food plus ice cream and...More

Visitors are not allowed to walk behind/directly under the falls, but you can descend a bunch of steps to get to a path to view the waterfall from below. The path continues along the water below the falls if you’d like a... More
