Thief River Falls, MN is your destination for year-round biking

It’s no surprise that nearly half a Million people visit Tettegouche State Park each year. The deep gorge carved by the Baptism River with its steep cliffs, dark forests and roaring falls casts a spell that’s hard to resist. But when the fall season draws to a close and the shady valleys begin to freeze, the crowds retreat and it’s quiet time on Minnesota’s North Shore.

Since 1991 the Parks & Trails Council of Minnesota has saved 300 acres of land, to be added to Tettegouche State Park.
