Fort Ridgely State Park

An absolute gem

...of a park can be found in the far northwest corner of Nicollet County (and a tiny bit of Renville County). You'll find great hiking trails, beautiful vistas, a paved bike trail to nearby Fairfax, various camping opportunities (RV, tent, backpack), horse trails, plus historical Civilian Conservation Corps- and Veteran Conservation Corps-built buildings and the associated Fort Ridgely Historic Site. (It used to be known for an in-park golf course, but that's been "decomissioned" and re-naturalization is in progress.)



A regional man of mystery enjoying parks, trails, and other stuff around the great state of Minnesota!
