Trailblazers: this park is a must! Park trails link up to the Willard Munger State Trail at the north edge of the park; perfect for backpackers, bikers (both mountain and tour), hikers, horseback riders, and skiers. Check out the wildflowers in the spring, and the vivid colors in the fall. Walk on the swinging suspension bridge high above the raging St. Louis River. Visit the historic cemetery and the gorge at Thomson Dam.

fairly easy hike with small areas of elevation and some roots and rocky areas

Nice loop mostly along the St. Louis River and Silver Creek, which can be heard more often than seen. Somewhat famous suspension bridge takes you across St. Louis River. Crowds will thin out after you cross the bridge and begin the loop. Trail will be muddy with high grass in the spring, and part of the trail along Silver Creek appears to never get cut. Prepare for some tall grass. This is also the park's Hiking Club Trail. Overall, probably the best hike at Jay Cooke State Park.
