Hiking and Snowshoeing near Hinckley Minnesota

For a hike on our land you can enjoy a quarter-mile stroll around the pond or a longer hike of five miles or more over our private trails. In winter we have snowshoes plus boots and wool socks for your use.

For even longer hikes or snowshoe recursions we have several choices for you:

  • Governor Knowles State Forest is located nearby, on the Wisconsin side of the St. Croix.  One interesting hiking trail on the map is the Brandt Pines Interpretive Trail which winds through an old-growth stand of red and white pine.  Other possibilities are the trail between Nelson’s Landing and Foxes Landing and the trail from the Highway 70 landing to the Sandrock Cliffs and back.
  • The Gandy Dancer Trail heading south from Danbury.is surfaced with crushed limestone for excellent footing.  With parking right at the trail and Wisconsin Highway 77 in Danbury, you can walk a half mile for a lovely view from the bridge over the Yellow River and then on for another half mile to Round Lake.
  • St. Croix State Park has over 100 miles of hiking trails.
