You’ll Forget You’re In Minnesota On Cliffline Trail, An Easy Hike That Leads Through A Wide-Open Prairie

When most people think of Minnesota, they imagine thousands of sparkling lakes or thick forests full of trees. While these landscapes are certainly common throughout the state, the Land of 10,000 Lakes has plenty of other scenery as well. Southwestern Minnesota is a lesser-explored part of the state that happens to be home to some of Minnesota’s most unique scenery. You can easily take it all in on one hike through Blue Mounds State Park. The Cliffline Trail offers spectacular views of the wide-open prairie from atop pink quartzite cliffs. Your hike along this easy trail will make you forget you’re in Minnesota.
