We continue our adventure to visit a nearby state park that we haven’t been to, and this time, we visited Sakatah Lake State Park in Waterville. It took a little more than an hour drive to get there.
The entire day was cloudy and windless, but it was chilly with the temperature hovering around mid 60s. We hiked 3.5 miles for 2 hours in this lush green quiet forest. This state park is located right beside of Upper Sakatah Lake where the lake appears bigger than the park. There is a 39-mile bike trail called Sakatah Singing Hills State Trail that cuts across this state park connecting Faribault and Mankato.
