St. Croix Falls
St. Croix Falls in western Polk County is home to a trio of visitor’s centers that detail the area’s rich glacial heritage. Wisconsin’s first state park, Interstate State Park, is located on the edge of town. The Polk County Information Center, at the intersection of Highways 8 & 35-South, displays historical pictures and Native American exhibits. It’s a wonderful source of travel information. The town is also the headquarters of the St. Croix National Scenic Riverway, where a new multi-million dollar visitor’s center was opened in 2006. For hikers, St. Croix Falls is the western terminus of the Ice Age Trail, a national and state scenic trail that meanders 1,000 miles through central and southern Wisconsin.
