Seven hiking trails are maintained by the National Park Service along the St. Croix and Namekagon rivers. Trails are open year-round. Winter trails are not groomed. The Hiking Brochure offers short descriptions on all the trails and simple maps. Additional trails exist in nearby state parks and forests.
