This is an easily accessible park with great hikes, however the wonderful newly remodeled visitors center attracts crowds of people that normally wouldn't visit state parks and don't appreciate the outdoors. We witnessed a large group of students from a nearby Ely community college hike...More

We went in the winter time. This is really not the time to do hikes up in northern Minnesota. When we went, there was a lot of ice which meant stairs leading down to some of the trails were icy, difficult, and dangerous.. There were...More

No, it is not easy. If you go in, planning to stay in until your stay is over might be best for young children. If they are old enough to hike a bit that will help, but carrying them may be hard up and down the hills.
