The Kinnickinnic River is a Class 1 trout stream and popular paddling destination near River Falls. The Art on The Kinni art fair is held along the bike trail and the river in downtown River Falls.

Shorter plastic kayaks recommended. Rocks and shallows are plentiful, and quick maneuvering is sometimes required. The put-in involves a long, sometimes rugged portage.

  • 10:30 - Drop & secure boats at the put-in in River Falls (bring cable lock)
  • 11:00 - Drive to the Take-out outside Kinnickinnic State Park
  • 11:30 - Bike to the put-in, secure bike, and make 1000' carry to river (bring your cart if you have one) -- don't forget your padlock key and car key!
  • 1:00 - Paddle to the State Park
  • 4:00 - Return to River Falls to get your bike
  • 5:00 - Grab a well-deserved dinner, talk smart, and head home!
