The Roseau River Water Trail Masterplan proposes designs for six sites that were selected along the Roseau River that are significant in terms of access and use of the Roseau River at the following specific locations: Hayes Lake State Park, Malung Town Hall, City Park, City Center, Stoe's Bridge and Ross Town Hall.

It is the intent of the Roseau River Watershed District (RRWD), a local governmental agency in Roseau County, to work with project partners to plan, implement, and promote the Roseau River as a water trail. A water trail is a stretch of river or lake that is mapped and managed for recreation.
