Trip 1

Relax and enjoy a little over an hour on the St. Croix River between Soderbeck Landing and Hwy 70 Landing. This 3.9-mile river trip is great for everyone! It is ideal for those that want a quick trip or are short on time. Paddlers can also turn this into a day trip by adding other adventures like fishing, lunch on an island, or a hike through Sandrock cliffs.
