Although it is only a two-hour drive from major metropolitan areas, the upper St. Croix retains a rugged, almost wilderness character.

Gliding past heavily wooded banks and pine-studded islands, a canoeist will see few signs of human presence.

The upper St. Croix is designated as a wild and scenic river.
