[Total: 0    Average: 0/5]

The Nature Trail at Minnetrista is a beautiful short looped trail that is perfect for anyone! It is less than a mile long but offers many fun nooks to rest and be in nature. There is a small pond which is often filled with turtles and frogs, a lending library, and a slack line available for use.

Minnetrista’s grounds have a ton to offer in other areas including several walking areas, lots of greenspace/gardens, free public herb garden, a museum (fee), discovery cabin, and the backyard playground.
