Hike the King and Queen Trail at Palisades State Park

255th Street - Search Nearby - Added by Isaac Parsons

Split Rock Creek flows through Sioux Quarzite rock formations making picturesque cliffs!

The hike is a very simple hike, you can make it longer or shorter as you would like. There is one spot were the trail gets a little steep and is rutted, you go from the rivers edge, to up on top of the cliffs and bluffs area. 

Fall is a great time to go and visit Palisades State Park, with the Fall foliage and the trees changing! 

To enter Palisades State Park you will need a pass, either a day pass or an annual permit. There is a campground as well in the Park.
