Hiking and Biking

Trails That Tell Tails

In Tatanka Bluffs, our hiking and biking trails offer more than just scenic routes and breathtaking views; the paths weave through our local historic sites. Wandering through Fort Ridgely State Park, for example, you can explore a place where history happened and learn about the U.S.-Dakota conflict of 1862, one of the major events in Minnesota’s early history.

Our trails will take you through a wide range of terrain, from easy to challenging, making this an ideal outdoor adventure for all visitors, regardless of their general activity levels. The trails wind through mostly wooded areas and open prairie areas, providing varied landscapes along with shade to help protect hikers from the heat of the summer months.
