In 2022, Washington County is leading a master plan process for the Middle St Croix Valley Regional Trail – a document that will guide the future development of a multiuse trail that will run through eastern Washington County. 

The corridor extends north to the St Croix Boom Site, and south to County Road 18 in downtown Afton. 

The future trail will feature vital connections to local trails, parks, schools, and businesses in the St. Croix River Valley. Learn more.
