Rock River Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"This section of the Rock River is perfect for beginners and offers a pleasant, tranquil trip through a mostly undeveloped landscape of floodplain forests and an occasional quaint farm. There are outstanding facilities at the put-in and takeout, as well as spectacular wildlife opportunities all along the way: songbirds including orioles and goldfinches, sandhill cranes, great blue herons, a yellow-crowned night heron, turtles, hawks, frisky fish, muskrats, wood ducks, woodpeckers, deer, grouse, and cormorants.

All along this trip will be infrequent gentle slopes. In addition, this trip offers innumerable recesses to secretive waters and back-channel sloughs. Some scoff at the Rock River for being too wide, too slow, or too marshy, but I’d argue that, for some, a wide, slow river that takes its time and is unimpeded by obstacles is absolutely perfect. There are moments of terrific wilderness on the Rock—and on this trip particularly."
