A loop trail from Redwing Park back to Redwing River. Suited to most all ability levels. A nice loop trail back to the river. It gets pretty muddy after a couple days of rain.
Not bad, don't expect to rack up many miles. Tried to find trail all the way to the lake to the NE, but it became hard to follow and I had to stop due to water/swamp. The portions closer to picnic area are nice, dry, and well marked, with occasional sitting spots (benches) in the woods. Be aware that there is some deer hunting activity going on back there. I saw the typical signs, and I believe a few people are allowed to archery hunt there legally.
Nice trail when it's dry. Summer heat brings lots of mosquitoes from the river.
I was there after a couple days of rain so it was muddy. Very muddy. The scenery was nice. The beginning of the trail was through mature pines and the river was more like a cyprus swamp.
