Hike, 6-8 miles
Lake Maria State Park

Enjoy one of the few remaining stands of the “Big Woods,” a maple, oak and basswood forest that once covered part of southern Minnesota.  The marshes, potholes, and lakes provide excellent habitat for wildlife. Visitors have seen bald eagles, Cooper’s hawk, Franklin’s gull, osprey, common egret, common loon, trumpeter swans, great blue heron, marsh hawk, and goldfinch.  The planned hike route includes views of Putnam and Bjorkland lakes as well as Maria Lake.
