Rasmussen Woods, just off of Stoltzman Road in Mankato, is a nature sanctuary nestled in the heart of the city.
Largely wooded, the park also offers extensive wetlands and meadows. Over five miles of wood chipped trails lead past dolomite cliffs, a marshy creek, a remote pond, and beautiful meadows. Floating trails offer access through wetlands. Wildlife is abundant.
The Elk’s Nature Center offers educational opportunities as well as being available to reserve for community functions.
No pets are allowed in the park.
