This rural stretch of the Milwaukee actually runs north before it turns south to its urban destination. Thanks in part to the Riveredge Nature Center, this section is wooded and wild. A challenge of riffles of the scraping variety and sometimes deadfall navigation, the river is nonetheless wide enough to find a channel and is divided frequently by small islands. Most paddlers are pleasantly surprised by the amount of wildlife on a river more often associated with the city. After a brief pass through a small town, the river widens and slows for the last straight shot to a county park.
