  • Description 

    Many of the old buildings in St Paul are bricks made by the Twin Cities Brick Company from material from these brickyards.

    There are 3 waterfalls and numerous other seepage. This area is < 30m in height but has a lot of ice and possible lines. Have fun exploring; ice forms in different places each year.

    Getting There 

    There are two pull-out parking areas along Lilydale Rd on the south side of he river in St Paul. Follow the obvious trails to the ice. It is also possible to park in the residential area off of 13 at the top of the park and take the trail at the top of the cliff.
