Trail Details: 5.2 miles - This is best during high water. The portage is approximately 1/4 mile during low water.
There are two loops, a shorter 1 mile loop or the longer 5.2 mile loop. During low or "normal" pool conditions you will need to portage your canoe between 1st Lake and Wiggle Waggle Slough. This trail winds through the braided streams and sloughs of the Upper Mississippi River.
