The Chippewa River provides a wooded retreat in the farmland of southwestern Minnesota. Most of the route is heavily wooded. Bluffs rise above the river, making for pleasant vistas as you look downstream. A few class I rapids mark the route. With some marshes and lakes in its headwaters, the Chippewa tends to hold its water well into the summer.
