The Nemadji makes a pleasant day trip through wild and rather strange country with dramatic lay banks, murky water, and the clear voice of timber wolves. This stretch of the Nemadji trips through several stretches of fast water and class I rapids. Each trip down the Nemadji can be a new experience. Round a bend and you may find that a new landslide has forced the river into a narrow, swift chute. In particular, watch out for slides that have brought a stand of trees into the channel. You’re likely to see all kinds of wildlife in this unsettled country. White-tailed deer and black bears are common. Timber wolves and bobcats frequent the area, but they are a rare sight.
