The Riverside Trail is a loop that is quite easy and is great for nearly all ages and abilities. In fact, this trail is fully wheelchair accessible. The trail is 3- to 10-feet wide with a maximum grade of 7%.

The trail begins at the picnic area near Lake Alice. From the parking lot head south past the picnic shelter and amphitheater. You will soon see the Saint Croix River. The trail follows the river north for about ¾ of a mile. The trail next heads south crossing a road; it then goes by Lake Alice and back to the parking area. Take time to view the interpretive signs located along the trail. There are also a number benches by the trail.

A map of the trail can be found here.
