He's a Twin Cities-based writer with a BA in English and a MFA in creative writing, a Minnesota Master Naturalist, and the proud father of two adult children. With more than a decade of freelance writing experience under his belt, Trent is often out exploring his favorite topics: Minnesota's woods, lakes, and trails. Rhubarb pie is his weakness, so discovering new diners is also a passion.
Did you know you can take a short trail to a sandy cave in Minnesota – and then continue on to a waterfall? If you didn’t before, you do now. Head on out to Stillwater, and from there, we’ll show you where to go.
The whole hike is a little over a mile and is not particularly strenuous. Just be aware of your surroundings to avoid roots, erosion, and loose rocks as you walk. Reward yourself afterward with a burger and a shake at Leo’s Grill and Malt Shop in nearby Stillwater – you’ve earned it.
Have you hiked to the cave and/or waterfall at St. Croix Boom Site? Are there any other caves in Minnesota that are as easy to access and explore?
