The Hike To This Pretty Little Minnesota Waterfall Is Short And Sweet
Here in Minnesota, it should come as no surprise that we have a thing for waterfalls. After all, we have more than a dozen beautiful waterfalls all across the state. Some, like Kawishiwi Falls, are little-known spots that take a bit of hiking to get to. Others, like Gooseberry Falls, are easy to get to but full of other visitors hoping to catch a glimpse. Today, we want to talk about a lesser-known Minnesota waterfall that is easily accessible via a short and sweet hike. This spot isn’t crawling with visitors like other waterfalls, but it’s still absolutely spectacular. Read on to learn all you need to know about visiting the beautiful Winnewissa Falls.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures!
