Nicknamed "the Land of 10,000 lakes", Minnesota surprises with its commitment to nature and urban life. In the heart of America, on a land that is conducive to cross-fertilization, the art of living distilled by Minneapolis is unparalleled in terms of cultural and gastronomic life, at the foot of the Mississippi. A legacy that aviator Charles Lindbergh would not have refused, as he spent his youth vacation in Minnesota.

Review of Minneapolis: Pike Island Loop by Jose
May 05, 2020 · Community
Yo! This route didn’t start at the best starting point. For a good loop I recommend starting at Fort Snelling to avoid having to park at the Metro. The loop is not assessable during the spring or summer due to extreme muddy conditions that make walking almost impossible and extremely dangerous. Might be a better trail in the late fall or winter. Won’t do this particular loop again, but I might still hike around Fort Snelling as there are other trails in this area to enjoy.
