EXPLORE TAYLORS FALLS, MN & ST. CROIX FALLS, WI
Basalt rock creates the unique crack and face route climbs along the St. Croix River. Go back in time, and you will discover that this gray rock had fiery origins. About 1.1 billion years ago, a massive crack, or rift, split the earth’s crust in this area. Immense pools of lava oozed from the rift for many years and hardened into the basalt rock you may climb today.
Routes at the park are commonly top-roped, but offer opportunity for short lead climbs. No permanent protection is affixed at Interstate – MN. Affixing permanent anchors of any type is prohibited.

The towering cliffs along the St. Croix River are made of a hard gray rock called basalt formed by ancient lava flows which make for fantastic climbing. The park itelf is not maintained for rock climbing, and all climbing is done at your own risk.
Climbers may encounter loose rocks and surfaces can become slippery when wet or leaf covered. Individual climbing permits are not required; however, climbing instructors should contact the park office regarding a use permit. First come, first serve on climbing routes.
Trollhaugen's Aerial Adventure Park provides the thrill of playing on a giant, floating playground. (Think Ewok Village meets Ninja Warrior). It's like climbing trees, hanging from tires, and swinging on ropes just like when you were a kid, on a far bigger scale and creative environment, with the backup support of world-class safety equipment.
The FreefallXP (experience) involves a 2 story tower with 2 platforms, one at 18' and one at 27'. Everyone is required to start with the lower platform. Once you demonstrate that you can jump safely (landing on your rear end or back) you will be allowed to go to the top platform. So, for your first ticket, you can get up to 2 jumps!
