Fort Snelling State Park is full of history and scenery, but did you know it has rail history? I’ve lived in MN most of my life but always learning something new about our State Parks. With the forecast for tomorrow looking like a nice fall day, it would be perfect to enjoy some time outdoors.
Planes, trains and automobiles- oh my! Join a park naturalist to explore the rail history in this area before heading out on the trails to look for any visible signs that may still remain.
