  • I know this is a not really a bike trail in terms of it just being some hiking paths but that doesn't mean you shouldn't consider this if you want a nice ride around some beautiful scenery. The park is beautifully maintained, lots of cool stuff to see (especially if you're not from the area). Lots of history here about the original industry that made St. Cloud earn "The Granite City" name. Come here on a hot summer day and ride/walk around and take a splash! Or come whenever and enjoy beautiful scenery and awesome drop offs from the massive quarries! Family friendly as well. Love it here!
  • Very fun place to hike around take pictures and swim. The water is pretty blue color and definitely very deep in most places. Went with my good friends and enjoyed every bit of it. We weren't prepared for swimming unfortunately I would have loved to jump in!
