DescriptionSituated in the hills that rise from the banks of the St. Croix River, Taylors Falls makes up in eye-catching scenery and historic charm what it lacks in size. The construction of a dam in 1906 buried the eponymous falls beneath backed-up water, but another natural phenomenon looms just downstream: the striking, glacier-created “Dalles” rock formations.
Tourists flock to this former steamboat stop for summer canoeing, biking and boating and winter skiing and snowboarding. Parkland and hiking trails abound; for information about outdoor recreation phone (651) 465-5133.
