The crushed limestone trails are graded to meet ADA standards. In extremely wet seasons, the trails can be soft and present some difficulty for wheelchair users.

Early traders followed the rivers inland from Lake Superior. John Sayer and his crew canoed up the Brule river, down the St. Croix and up the Snake River to get to this site. Bring your canoe and experience the life of a voyageur and travel along a quite section of the Snake River. Boat landings are located two-miles up or down river of the site.
