|The owner of the house immediately SE of the Hwy 13 bridge on the way into Ivy Falls approached us today saying that we had trespassed on his land. The creek wasn't frozen so we had walked along the bank so it is certainly a possibility. He did seem open to the idea of us knocking on his door to ask permission to cross his land. I am not sure who actually owns the falls, but I guess it would be prudent not to make an enemy of this guy. His name is Matt. He has a huge beard. Does anyone know the official access rights to Ivy Falls?|

Is the adjoining land public property?
"There is no truth in a commonly heard statement that the State of Minnesota owns a
definable strip of land, around every lake and every stream or that this strip of land gives the
general public the right to walk along the shoreline. This is not the case. The general rule of
thumb is that the shoreline property owner’s rights follow the water level up and down and the
general public has no right to use the shoreline or a dry lake bed unless the adjoining shoreline is
already in public ownership."

I researched this last year and decided that it is on private property. Some people claim that they are allowed to walk on the creek because it is a navigable waterway, but I disagree with this. Based on the states waterway maps, the creek is not a navigable waterway.
If you have other interactions with the property owner and he seems open to working with climbers, please let me know. I am writing an ice climbing guide to MN and had decided to leave out Ivy Falls due to the trespassing issues.
