Kinnickinnic River Tennis Courts in River Falls to County F Bridge - 7.7 river miles This is about 2 to 3 hours depending on your speed - 7.6 road miles A pretty easy ride back to the car
Notes: - Park by the tennis court at Glen Park in River Falls. - This is a really nice paddle, but the river is fairly narrow and you will have to avoid some down trees and other debris. - The first hill to Cty Road FF is a steep one
Apple River Huntington Landing to Johannesburg Landing - 4.2 river miles This is about 1 hour & 15 minute paddle - 3.6 road miles A pretty easy ride back to the car
Notes: - The Huntington Landing is near Cedar Creek Inn and the Johannesburg Landing is across the road from the Outpost Bar & Grill. - This is a pretty short route, but can be increased by starting at the park in Star Prarie, or go further to Riverdale Flowage. - To extend further you can start on Church road off of Hwy 65 north of Star Prairie or even further north off Random drive (low bridge), or further down Random drive (high bridge). - Or go further to the Riverdale flowage.
St Croix River Soderback landing to Hwy 70 - 4.6 river miles This is about a 2 to 3 hour paddle - 6 road miles (all paved) Just take Hwy 70, north on Soderback, then left on Ferry Rd
Notes: - This is a pretty simple bike route to get back to the car with the biggest annoyance being riding a couple of miles on Hwy 70 - Going out of Fox would be doable but would make the bike route 14.5 miles and about 9 miles in the kayak, so add 2 to 3 hours
Cannon River Riverside Park in Cannon Falls to Miesville Ravine - 7.2 river miles - 7.2 road miles (1st 2/3rds was on gravel)
Notes: - The river route started at Riverside Park - For this route it ended at Miesville Ravine County Park, which is when you see the power lines - The 1st hill out of the Miesville Ravine is a steep climb
Mississippi River Started from Kelley's Landing at Harriet Park Regional Park and at the Wakota bridge. Both are nice and easy places to start or end a route.
This is an easily accessible 7.5 mile route right in the city, but you have to deal with the industrial part of the river - many parked barge, cement levees, & debris. It's an easy 6.2 mile ride back to Harriet Island.
Mississippi River Hidden Falls to Harriet Island Still need to do this some day
Wakota Bridge to Spring Lake Park Still need to do this some day, maybe when the bike has been completed
Around Pike Island paddle both the Minnesota and Mississippi rivers in one trip
Clearwater to Snuffy's Landing
Minnehaha Creek I definitely want to do this some day, but have not researched on where the best place to put in and take out near a good bike route.
