If you are in the area this is a must see. It is a very beautiful memorial to a very great man. The whole experience is very moving.

Unless you are familiar with the life and times of Senator Wellstone, from the green bus to his tireless fights for equality and fairness, this may not mean much. Come and enjoy the solitude. And say a little prayer

This is as close as one can get to the Wellstone crash site. It is a few miles off of US 53 on Bodas Road. Worth the drive. There is a path through the woods with memorial stones and excellent information about Paul and Sheila...More

Not too well kept up. There are a couple short trails one with a fallen tree in the way and some memorial rocks and other information about the former Senator. The trail to the crash site is overgrown and probably full of ticks and mosquitos...More

I visit here quite often. It's always quiet here in the middle of the woods. The site is a short 3 mile drive off of US 53. It's easy to miss because the signage is minimal. The walking path has great info on the life...More

Very pretty setting and contemplative. Kind of eerie when you get close to the site. I do wish to the trail went closer to the ceash site. You can stand about 2000 feet from the actual site where the plane went down. You can see...More

I always stop here when I am on the Range. It is beautifully constructed with signs about PW and seating at various areas as you walk through the forest. Tributes to his family and staff who died as well. Very moving.

Don't expect anything fancy... the Wellstone Memorial is simple and unadorned. It is beautiful and a nice place for reflection on the life of those lost. Tucked into a wooded area near the crash site, each person who died that day is represented with a...More

I was really impressed with the way this memorial was done. It told Senator Wellstone's story and presented his views very well, without being overly political. Any Minnesotan of either party should visit this memorial.
