Outdoor Recreation

Are you up for an adventure?

From the tip top of our bluffs to the deep blue of our river, Winona is an outdoor recreation dream.

Trails that wind through hardwood forests offer adventure-seekers and novices alike a scenic stage for outdoor activities on land, and the Mighty Mississippi beckons paddlers, boaters and swimmers with its wide channel, intimate backwaters and sunny beaches meant for lounging. Learn more about the Upper Mississippi River National Wildlife & Fish Refuge, and the Friends of the Refuge Headwaters.
