“Take this short, wayside trail to see one of Southern Minnesota's tallest waterfalls.”— Sarah Houle
There is sometimes a portable toilet on site, but that may be seasonal.
Minnemishinona Falls was acquired in 2005, and was developed and opened to the public for the first time in 2007. Prior to 2005, the falls were privately owned. When the land went up for sale, Nicollet County stepped in to acquire the land and develop it for public use.
