Reno Bottoms Canoe Trail Map
Trail Details: 3 miles to 14 miles - Moderate. There are 3 take-out points along the trail. However, from April to early June, Millstone and New Albin Army
Road Landings are frequently under water. You should take out at Visger’s
Landing during high water conditions.
Reno to New Albin Landing 14 miles (4-8 hours) See below for description of the stretches of river. Spillway to Millstone Landing 7miles (2-4 hours) Pickerel Slough merges with the canoe trail about halfway to Millstone
Landing. Use the map and follow the signs to make your way through the
maze of islands and marsh.
Millstone to Visger's Landing 3 miles (1-2 hours) During high water you will be able to paddle directly to the landing from Ice
Haul Slough, located about 0.5 miles south of Millstone Landing. If the
river is low, you will have to go around the islands and paddle a short distance
upstream to the landing.
Visger's to New Albin Army Road Landing 4 miles (1-2 hours) The trail crosses large expanses of open water. Be aware of wind conditions.
Directions: The trail is located off Highway 26, just east of Reno, Minnesota. Be prepared to carry your gear from the parking lot, across the railroad tracks, down to the launch site on the south side of Lock and Dam 8 spillway.
