Hiking the bluff here has been an adventure repeated many times since the 1950s. Truly a treasure of SE Minnesota.

Day Hike on the Dakota Trail at Whitewater State Park in Southeastern MN. Great weather and a fun hike. I camped at Walk in campsite #2. Nice secluded site. It rained heavily starting at around 1am and never stopped until after I left. It made for a real muddy pack up and hike back to the car.

This video continues from the end of part 1 and finishes the rest of the hike and then a little gear talk at the campsite. I didn't film any in the next morning because it was pouring rain and extremely muddy with standing water all over the place!
