George H. Crosby State Park is located in Finland Minnesota. Driving out to this astonishing sanctuary feels like you’re in the mountains of Montana or in the Alaskan wilderness because you’re isolated from the rest of the world.
When you start to hike, you will notice that it’s silent. If you just stop and listen you don’t hear anything or anyone. Its amazing really! This is a nice retreat to clear your mind and to renew the soul. Here at George Manitou, there are many trails to explore but we took the Middle trail that extends out to a waterfall area.
The trails weren’t that complicated or hard to hike, but there are some challenging spots. If you bring children along keep them close because in some areas it gets steep and rocky.
All along the trails there is wildlife and plants galore! I absolutely love walking the forest and enjoy seeing these tiny but amazing views! I would recommend this park to anyone! You will not be disappointed!
