Explore this easily accessible 42-foot falls just off the highway in Mankato, Minnesota.

On Judson Bottom Road, you will see a low, red bridge to the left of the road. Just past the bridge, on the same side, there is a dirt parking lot. Walk back to the bridge, where you will see the falls just below. It's even a treat to view in winter, when the surface has frozen over.
