This is a leisurely hike on a little known state forest trail on an old railroad bed through river bottom forest near where the Canon River meets the Mississippi River near Redwing. We will be looking for early migrants and Cuckoos which nest in the area.

Make sure you bring insect repellent, although if you wish to volunteer as mosquito bait, you will be welcome.  Bring a lunch if you wish to join us for an after lunch destination, as yet undetermined.

After you pass the turn-off for the casino, make a left at the next intersection (CR 46) near the BOTTOM of the hill.  Take the fork to the right (Collischan Road).  Follow the road about two and a half miles and take the fork to the left into the parking area for the trail head.
