Thomson to North Cordova

Section 11:

Much of the trail along the middle section of the Great River Trail parallels the Mississippi River and Rte. 84. The path runs on open, straight stretches that periodically divert to make visits to small river towns and riverside pocket parks. You should see many great blue herons and the occasional eagle.
