About The Zoo:

Crag in Brief: Your nose lifts with the sweet smell of wildflowers, a gift from a gentle breeze. A softly babbling creek flows at your feet as you gaze upon the friendly glowing orange and brown cliffs that line the eastern valley rim. A small brook trout jumps for a mosquito as a fawn prances up the western bank to catch up with its mother. The Zoo is beautiful. It's so beautiful that it inspired this beauteous portraiture. The climbing is decent too. Directions: From Grand Avenue (traveling south) turn right onto Waseca Street. Drive to the end of Waseca Street and turn right onto a dirt road. Follow this road around to the left and park before the old railroad bridge. Follow the Kingsbury Creek Trail by foot up the creek for about .5 mile. Go to the second bridge and move off the trail into the creek bed. The climbing stretches from here to the highway on the right side of the creek.
