A great "get away" park only one hour from the Twin Cities, William O'Brien provides a beautiful setting for quality recreation along the banks of the St. Croix River. Hiking trails offer quiet exploration of the park's rolling, wooded hills. For anglers, the channels of the St. Croix have northerns, walleye, bass and trout. Ideal for canoeing, the river is also a migratory pathway that offers visitors an exciting diversity of sights and sounds. In the winter, snowshoeing, skiing and camping attract enthusiasts.

Didn't do the whole loop but covered a few of the trails by the river and lake. Great location, well-looked after trails. And because of the camp sites, a few handy stops for water too.

Several different types of sceneries. Really enjoyable.

Easy, Not crowded.
