Sakatah Singing Hills State Trail  (Minnesota)
    Sakatah is the Dakota word for Singing Hills, a reference to the area's Indian heritage. The Sakatah Singing Hills Trail is also a trail of lakes, as it passes by a dozen on the way from Mankato to Faribault. From Mankato, the trail climbs at an almost imperceptible rate for the first two miles, going through a heavily wooded area surrounded by large hills. This is also the most used and scenic section of the trail. On its way east, it passes through several quaint little towns with beautiful lakes.  Between Waterville and Morristown, the trail passes through the Sakatah State Park and runs along the south side of Sakatah Lake. The park is about three miles long and has a dense tree canopy through its entire length. Even though the last several miles of trail into Faribault parallel the highway, there are enough trees to make the trail seem removed from the traffic. The total trail length is 39 miles. This is one nice trail in the south central part of the state.
