This park is beautiful. Boarders the city of New Ulm, MN. Has acres of forested land filled with deer and other wild animals. Fort nature walkers is supreme.

Hello Hannah. Flandrau is a state park so it is open to the public year-round. A day hike would be perfect! I suggest using the park's hiking club trail; it starts at the pool and talks you along the river, through... More

The park doesn't have bike trails, only hiking. The city of New Ulm has a bike loop that is pleasant and about 12-15 miles long. A good description of it, along with other area activities, can be found on the city's website... More
