A slow, winding river bordered by a fringe of woods, the North Fork is a good bet for beginning paddlers and families out for a day or even overnight. By the time it flows through Rockford, the North Fork has burned up the steepest of its gradient. It settles into a slower pace, meandering across a floodplain sometimes several miles wide. High, wooded bluffs often line the channel. Commonly seen wildlife include waterfowl, shorebirds such as herons, and white-tailed deer. Several riverside parks provide access and camping along the river for paddlers who wish to take a trip of more than one day. Hazard: Low bridge at County Route 14 crossing above Rockford -- watch out for high water.
