St. Croix River Crossing Trail

The St. Croix River Crossing Trail is a high priority off-road trail segment that is apart of the St. Croix River Crossing bridge construction and mitigation efforts.

Minnesota DOT and Wisconsin DOT will complete the trail system connecting Minnesota and Wisconsin, as part of the compensation to offset impacts of a new river crossing on the recreational values of the St. Croix River.
