The North Fork runs through several easy rapids as it passes several high bluffs and woodlands. The channel is now deep enough to be canoeable much of the year and wide enough to allow room to maneuver around snags. The North Fork of the Crow, now larger and deeper, continues its path through central Minnesota’s rolling fields of corn and soybeans. This stretch of the North Fork, which includes most of the portion designated in the state wild and scenic rivers system, is perhaps the most attractive part of the river for canoeists because of the river’s intimacy and varied speed. Watch for farm fences stretched across the river. Watch out, too, for low bridges. The County Road 112 bridge about 4 miles downstream from the put-in and the County Road 133 bridge downstream from Forest City allow little clearance during high water.
