In 2017 I set a goal to hike in all the hikable Minnesota State Parks. There are 67 of the 76 total Minnesota State Park and Recreation Areas. Doing this has given me new perspectives on the state, challenged me physically and mentally and given me inspiration to try new trails as often as I can.
Along the way I collect the park patches and trail maps as a reminder of all the wonderful parks I’ve visited. I hope this list provides you some inspiration. Check out the links to see more about what makes each park unique and worth a visit.
An “X” before the park name indicates parks hiked. An “-” indicates the park is not hikeable.
