AuTrain River - Beginner - Intermediate

wsrlogo03The slow-moving, meandering Au Train River offers an excellent four to six hour canoe trip in the Hiawatha National Forest. The trail begins at the Forest Service boat launch in the Au Train Lake Campground and proceeds north approximately 10 miles to Lake Superior. The Au Train River was once a logging run to Lake Superior. Logging began along the river in 1861 and major logging occurred in the 1880's. The largest logging drive took place in 1887 when 10 million feet of pine logs were floated down the Au Train. Now, an absence of rapids and portages creates a quiet, relaxing outing. Numerous sloughs along the water-course harbor a large variety of wildlife including ducks, songbirds, great blue herons, kingfishers, muskrats and turtles. Walleye, porch, suckers and bullheads inhabit the river year long. Steelhead make a spring run and salmon a fall run.
