This waterfall is located in Saint Paul, but feels like an escape from the city.

This easy and accessible hike takes you to a nice little waterfall within a ravine. From the parking lot, walk over to the River Overlook, then continue along the trail to the falls. The trail will drop you down to the base of the falls, where you can walk behind the curtain of water. The flow is best in early spring.

There are trails along the river bluff and back up to the path heading strait east of the falls. Be sure to wear shoes you don't mind getting muddy :)
