FROM BICYCLE TRAILS TO MOUNTAIN BIKING TO WATERFALLS & PARKS
Ramsey Park is Minnesota's largest municipal park. Ramsey Park is free to enjoy & open 365 days a year. It has 256 acres of natural beauty, miles of hiking trails, a zoo with animal feeding, scenic waterfalls, picnic areas, playgrounds & a campground with 31 camping spots, some of which are located along the Redwood River in Redwood Falls.
Ramsey Park has miles of concrete trails & numerous bridges available for you to explore. Maps are posted along the trails throughout the park to help you decide if you just want to make a short loop or if you want to explore further throughout the whole park to see key landmarks.
Choose to start your adventure at the west end near the Redwood County Museum, the east end near the zoo, the Trailhead Overlook behind the ELCA, or several other destinations throughout the park.
You will notice that many of the trails cross the Redwood River or Ramsey Creek at various points. There are multiple pedestrian bridges, with the historic Swayback Bridge & Suspension Bridge providing wonderful views & photo spots along your hike. You’ll also be amazed at how far you can see from some of the scenic overlooks within Ramsey Park. Be on the lookout for wildlife as it can be common to see deer, squirrels, or wild turkeys near the trails as well. You will also find an unpaved nature trail loop right along the river that has signs to highlight some of the wildlife & vegetation found throughout the park.
