Banning State Park

My brother and I hiked Banning State Park in Minnesota in June 2019. The highlight was going off the official trail map in the Hell’s Gate area along the Kettle River. That entailed some rock and cliff scrambling and a few wrong turns. We both thought about bailing out a few times, but stuck with it. No regrets. The park includes the remains of an old marble quarry and associated buildings, some of which are seen below.
