Description:

The Vermillion River, a 59.6-mile waterway in Scott and Dakota counties, Minnesota, flows into the Mississippi River just south of Hastings and includes 13.5 miles designated as a trout stream, a rare feature near a metropolitan area. The nearby park, located off Highway 61 on 21st Street East, offers a delightful spot for picnics, exploration, and viewing the impressive 35-foot Vermillion Falls and its limestone ravine. In the 19th century, this waterfall powered a gristmill, but today it serves as a beautiful and easily accessible attraction.
