The St. Croix River follows the Wisconsin-Minnesota border for 100 miles before it joins the Mississippi River just south of St. Paul. The St. Croix served as a natural passageway for centuries, linking Lake Superior to the Mississippi River. Today, the St. Croix National Scenic Riverway follows the upper 200 miles of the river, starting at its headwaters near Gordon, Wisconsin. One of eight original Wild and Scenic Rivers, the St. Croix corridor provides 252 miles of panoramic views, recreation sites and a haven for wildlife. Its clear sparkling waters not only support fish, birds and mammals, but have also enticed Minnesota and Wisconsin to built seven state parks and a nature center.
