Kettle River Highbanks

Kettle River side is a pretty, single file trail right on the river edge with benches every quarter mile while the St. Croix river side was wide and much less interesting due to its distance from the actual river. The point is well worth seeing but from the exploring we did, just hiking along the Kettle is definitely the way to go! The St. Croix side has a creek crossing and many wet patches, expect to get your feet wet in the spring.

Be aware that there is a creek crossing on the St. Croix side, about a half mile north of the confluence.
