This Hike To A Scenic Overlook In Minnesota Winds Through An Ancient Burial Site

Minnesota has a long history. Even before statehood, the land that makes up our state has been occupied by native peoples for at least 12,000 years. As such, there are many places throughout the state where you can see evidence of those people. At Jeffers Petroglyphs, you can find 7,000-year-old rock carvings. At Pipestone National Monument, you can find ancient pipestone quarries. And at the interesting place we’d like to feature today, you can see ancient burial mounds. One great way to see them is by taking a hike through a St. Paul park that passes by the mounds and leads to a scenic overlook. Read on below to learn more about Indian Mounds Regional Park:
