Au Train River

Au Train River Professional Review and Guide

"A mellow river that serves as a pleasant outing for families visiting the Pictured Rocks area. The placid Au Train River got its name from the French voyageurs, who had to drag (or trainerant) their canoes over a sandy shoal at the river’s mouth on Lake Superior.

In the 1880s it served as a major logging run, transporting 10 million board-feet of pine in one year. Today it carries families in canoes from the resorts that line the shores of scenic Au Train Lake to the popular swimming beach at the river’s mouth."
