Enjoy the transition to autumn during the month of September with some fresh coffee, good conversation, and healthy morning walk next to the St. Croix River. Park Ranger will lead these walks (and provide the coffee!) each Sunday of the month.

Each walk will be on a developed trail and last about 1 to 1.5 hours at a leisurely pace. Uneven terrain is found on portions of these trails, so wear comf...ortable walking shoes, appropriate clothing for the weather, and bring water, snacks or other items as needed.

Ridgeview Trail - Osceola Loop: This 2.25 mile loop trail follows the bluff line through pine and desciduous woods overlooking the St. Croix. Meet the Ranger at the Osceola Loop Trailhead, located just north of Osceola, Wis., 1 mile west of Wisconsin Highway 35, on Polk County Road S.

These morning walks are free and open to all members of the public. These walks may be cancelled in the event of threatening or inclement weather. For more information, please call the St. Croix River Visitor Center at 715-483-2274.
