“This run circles the Louisville Swamp.”— Austin Lynch
Turn right at Flood's Road. Stay left at the fork, running to the intersection with the State Corridor Trail. Follow this trail north along the Minnesota River, passing a canoe-in campsite and traveling back into the bottomland forest. Johnson Slough will be visible on your right.
Once you've reached the northern end of the area, the trail will move away from the river, crossing Sand Creek. Once you reach the access trail, follow it south and east until you arrive back at the parking lot.
