Most People Aren’t Aware Of This Charming Waterfall Hiding In Minnesota

Minnesota has many incredible waterfalls. Gooseberry Falls is one of our most popular state parks. And you can’t go to Minnehaha Falls on a nice summer day without running into a crowd. But what if you’re looking for a waterfall that not many people know about? One idea is to visit Shadow Falls, a waterfall hiding in a gorge in a little-known St. Paul park. It may be smaller than Minnehaha, but this waterfall is well worth the visit.
