Long Lake Canoe Trail

Canoeing the Upper Mississippi River

Canoeing the Upper Mississippi River

The 4 1/2 mile Long Lake Canoe Trail winds through the Upper Mississippi River National Wildlife and Fish Refuge. The slower moving water and the intricate network of sloughs and islands is a haven for wildlife. Moving quietly by canoe is one of the best ways to observe the exceptional variety of migrating and nesting birds, reptiles, amphibians and fur-bearing animals that flourish in the backwater habitat.
