Description

The slow moving, meandering AuTrain River offers an excellent four to six hour canoe trip. The trail begins at the Forest Service boat launch in the AuTrain Lake Campground and proceeds north approximately 10 miles to Lake Superior.

The AuTrain River was once a logging run to Lake Superior. Logging began along the river in 1861. Major logging occurred in the 1880's. The largest logging drive took place in 1887 when 10 million feet of Pine logs were floated down the AuTrain.

Now, an absence of rapids and portages creates a quiet, relaxing outing. Numerous sloughs along the water course harbor a large variety of wildlife including ducks, songbirds, great blue herons, kingfishers, muskrats, and turtles. Walleye, perch, suckers, and bullheads inhabit the river year long. Steelhead make a spring run and salmon a fall run.
