The Falls The park’s namesake proves that a waterfall doesn’t have to be big to be beautiful. The small, spring-fed falls tucked into the Mississippi River bluffs are absolutely worth exploring. Boat Launch Make use of the Hidden Falls boat launch and explore the river on your own skiff. Spend the day on the water fishing or just cruise around, you’ll enjoy the gorgeous scenery either way. Paddle Share The National Park Service-led kayak-rental service offers three-hour kayak rentals for one-person ($25) or tandem ($40). The Paddle Share Saint Paul route starts at Hidden Falls and ends at Harriet Island.

Enjoy constant river views as you walk, run or bike along the Crosby Farm Trail. The 3.7-mile route will take you through Crosby Farm Park to Hidden Falls. Bird Watching At 736 acres, Crosby Farm is the largest natural park in the Saint Paul parks system—meaning there is plenty of wildlife to be encountered. Grab your binoculars and scope out the bird scene during the spring and fall migrations.
