Go for a Hike

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.


  • Hunting is permitted in the St. Croix National Scenic Riverway. Wear blaze orange during hunting seasons.
  • Trail surfaces are uneven and may be steep. Watch your step.
  • Check for ticks often and know the symptoms of Lyme disease. Deer ticks are common along the Riverway and some carry the bacteria that cause the disease.
  • Know how to identify poison ivy and avoid contact.
  • Blastomycosis is a fungal infection that is commonly contracted by dogs and sometimes by humans. Avoid digging in moist soils.


  • Trails are for foot traffic only. No motorized vehicles or bicycles.
  • Berry and mushroom picking for personal use is permitted.
  • Flowers and other plants are protected.
  • Historical artifacts are not to be disturbed.
