The natural beauty of the trees and trails is outstanding. They also keep up the trails for cross country skiing. IT is a nice hike to/from the Center and the trail head.

We stopped here on a road trip up from Des Moines to Minneapolis. With the kids, we like to get out and stretch. We decided to check out this nature center. It's a lovely, wooded area, and the kids got to explore a bit outside....More
