Who says northern Cali gets to have all the big tree fun? At Nerstrand Big Woods State Park, huge basswoods tower over you, concealing the aptly named Hidden Falls watering hole. At this wide, shallow rapid on Prairie Creek, limestone bedrock is exposed and the rare dwarf trout lily blossoms all over.

It’s one of Minnesota’s only parks without a major historical site or body of water, which leaves it considerably less buggy than the rest! And unlike the state’s more flashy rec areas, you’ll find seclusion in this rarely-full spot. The main trail to the falls can get crowded, but if you make time to do the two loops that go around it, you’ll likely have the place to yourself.
