Join us as we hike to the frozen Hidden Falls at Nerstrand-Big Woods State Park in Minnesota!

After a long cold snap, we took advantage of a little bit of a warmer day to explore and hike at Nerstrand-Big Woods State Park. Warmer in this case being 22 degrees with a wind chill of about 5-8 degrees. It wasn't too bad once we got into the woods, but as you can hear in the video there was still a lot of wind.

Speaking of wind, sorry about the audio on this one. Still figuring out how well the new camera works under different conditions. Needless to say, I ordered wind screens right after I edited this video!

The hike to the falls and back was only about 1.5 miles with only a little elevation change.

From the park website: "Enjoy this park on foot, any season of the year. In the spring, the park is a wildflower garden where hepatica, bloodroot, Dutchman's breeches, and the dwarf trout lily bloom. The dwarf trout lily is only found here. Relax by Hidden Falls in the summer. The autumn brings a burst of red, orange, and gold in the maple-basswood forest, one of the last extensive stands of the "Big Woods." When winter comes, hike, snowshoe, or snowmobile the trails through picturesque woods." - https://www.dnr.state.mn.us/state_parks/park.html?id=spk00241

Hidden Falls from Nerstrand Big Woods State Park just outside of Northfield, Mn. Nice place to hike and is close to home. With all the rain this spring the falls is looking great.
