Great short walk. Beautiful surroundings. We’re from Seattle just needed a little exercise from traveling.

I’ve paddled this section many times and have experienced it both as a small child and as a skilled adult canoeist. Very pretty yet also quite popular due to the long standing canoe rental. This section is generally very slow and is intended more as a scenic trip. The lower section has ledges and class 3 and 4 rapids (mild interpretations of which except during the springtime melt) and are for more experienced paddlers.

This historic trail, a segment of the North Country National Scenic Trail, may be the oldest in Wisconsin. It was in use by Native Americans in 1680, when European explorers began using it. The trail is mostly unchanged today, save for plaques which remember historic figures who used the trail. It is in use year round, for hiking and snowshoeing.
