This is a nature lover's delight. Explore prairie, pine, and hardwood forests. View the Mississippi River from historic and picturesque "Chippewa Lookout." Novice canoeists can paddle the calm waters of the Crow Wing and Mississippi Rivers. Crow Wing is a park rich in cultural history. In this area, a frontier town emerged to serve the needs of travelers and traders. The town died when the railroad chose to cross the river at Brainerd. Walk through the site of the Old Crow Wing Village for a sense of history. The park still has a section of the famous Woods Trail, which served ox cart traffic that carried supplies between St. Paul and the Red River settlements.

well maintained trials, lots of bugs thow bring bug spray.

Nice river views and historical walk of Crow Wing, but most was just long and boring. Unless one is desperate for a long walk, I’d stick with the park’s designated Hiking Club Trail of about 2 miles.

Nice, easy trail. We seen a lot of wildlife. The turkeys were in the tree's. We also seen eagles and deer.

Very easy hike along the Mississippi through wooded area and some meadow. Only circled the old town area about 2 miles due to time but seems to be a lot of flat well manicured trail. Lots of wild life, mostly birds. And the historical significance of this once thriving trading outpost was interesting to explore by way of the plaques along the side of the trail. Very enjoyable.
