St. Croix Falls is the City of Trails!  One-third of the city is set aside in land preserve and there are numerous trails for hiking, cross-country skiing, and biking. The Gandy Dancer and Ice Age Trail both run through the city, as does our own amazing trail system. More trails along the St. Croix River are offered through both Wisconsin and Minnesota Interstate Parks where camping and canoe/kayak rental are also available.
