Sauk River-Pine View Park to Mississippi River

Sauk River-Pine View Park to Mississippi River Professional Review and Guide

"In its final miles, the Sauk River runs through long stretches of fast water and rapids.

The Sauk makes a mad dash to meet the Mississippi River, ripping through boulder-filled rapids and sliding swiftly through a winding and often-narrow channel. Individual rapids are not terribly difficult, but the long, continuous nature of the fast water makes it difficult for inexperienced canoeists to stop—whether they’re in their canoe or swimming after a mishap. You’ll have to negotiate scattered large boulders and chains of waves up to 2 feet high."
