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.
