About Minnemishinona Falls

Minnemishinona Falls on Judson Bottom Road just outside of North Mankato, is a beautiful 42 foot waterfall with an overlook.

During dry times of the year the falls are often just a trickle. The best time to visit is after a rain, or during wetter seasons.

Directions to the falls: From US Hwy. 169, proceed west on US 14 through North Mankato to Nicollet Co. 41, south on Co. 41 (Rockford Rd.) 1.5 miles to the falls (left side).
