    Location: Osceola Bluff Trail Time: 9:00 AM Fee Information: Free Contact Name: St. Croix River Visitor Center Contact Phone Number: 715-483-2274
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.

This 1 mile loop trail ascends the sandstone bluff line southwest of Osceola and offers one of the most dramatic views of the St. Croix River Valley in the area. There is a short, steep climb on this trail, and it also follows along the bluff edge for a distance. Meet the Ranger at the Geiger Brewery Historical Marker on the south side of Wisconsin Highway 243 and just west of the intersection with State Highway 35 in Osceola, Wisconsin.

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.
