Milwaukee river (county paddle)
June 16 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm
Join us on a nice little stretch down the Milwaukee river many have not yet enjoyed. This trip starts just outside the city limits of West Bend and takes us to Goeden Park (located at the intersection of 33/M). This is nearly a 8 mile paddle as it transverses the countryside and away from traffic noise. There are numerous wildlife views from the water, plus the occasional four legged creatures. This mostly wooded trip will shade the heat of the sun, while we enjoy the coolness of the water.
There may be an occasional downed tree along the way, however can be easily seen from a distance. The current and amount of water in the river this time of year is usually still pretty good, and offers a gentile push to aid as one paddles down stream. The time on the water is highly dependent on these factors – but plan to spend at least 4 hours on the water. There are no rapids, maybe an occasional riffle here and there – just a gorgeous stretch.Majority of the river banks have a gentile slope along the duration, the take out location at Goeden has two different areas to ascend from the water. Good footwear will be required for this stretch for both the put-in and take out locations (some rocks/mud and branches may be present).
Skill level for this trip – Novice and above (due to the time on water and distance) Bring along some snacks and water for this trip.
Cost $65. Kayaks and gear included in price. Maximum participants – 8
