The Minneopa Falls are a gem of the Mankato area. While there is no noteworthy rock climbing in Mankato other than some bouldering, these falls give a viable alternative for the climbing enthusiast during the winter months. Spectators are possible as there is a perfect view of the falls from the railing on the sidewalk above. That said, you will probably have the place to yourself.
Although probably not appropriate as a road trip destination, these falls can be a lot of fun if the conditions are good and you're in the area!
Take 169 south out of Mankato for about 2 or 3 miles and follow the signs to Minneopa Falls. Once you turn right off of 169, keep going straight and eventually take a left into the park.
The falls are a very short walk from the parking lot. To get to the base of the falls, follow the sidewalk and walk down the long set of stairs. From here you will need to follow the frozen river or walk along its side. Alternatively, rappel off your TR anchor to avoid the walk.
