Mississippi River Gorge Regional Park

The Mississippi River Gorge in the Twin Cities is the only true river gorge on the entire Mississippi River.

It was formed by a massive waterfall now known as St Anthony Falls cutting through a layer of sandstone on the weakened limestone over the course of 100s of years.

Mississippi River Gorge Regional Park is 8 miles of land starting at St Anthony Falls ending just passed Minnehaha Park.

132 acres of scenic outlooks, trails, limestone bluffs, picnic spots, beaches, and parks along the East and West side of the Mississippi River.

The Winchell Trail, Minnehaha Lower Glen Trail, Stone Arch Bridge, Gold Medal Park and Mill Ruins Park are a few noteworthy stops within the Regional Park.

  1. Love the trails and pathways on your photos! Heard so much about the Mississippi River since before but it’s nice to see how it looks like nowadays and what surrounds it.

  2. I love your pictures. The pathway next to the Mississippi River looks very interesting. It must be very cold in the winter if you are next to the river.
