Long Lake Canoe Trail - Upper Mississippi River National Wildlife and Fish Refuge

This is a 5 mile  looped trail ranked as easy. It can take 3-4 hours to complete. Located in the backwaters of the river with slower moving water than the main channel. Common sites along the trail include aquatic plants, beaver, muskrat and bald eagles.

This canoe trail is busy with beavers making dams and muskrats making huts. The human traffic is very minimal. Fall would be the most active for humans, especially during waterfowl hunting season.
