Trip Overview

Two person kayak from Lorraine Park to Ogilvie Bridge. 3 hours time from start to finish. Multiple sandbars and debri made the trip slow going with stops to get out and walk, lifting the kayak through the shallows. Tires and trash. There were some scenic spots with wildlife. We saw deer, ducks, and cranes. We parked on vehicle at Ogilvie Bridge to drive back to Lorraine Park. Overall a good time. 6/10 recommendation.

Safety Notes

Steep hill at Lorraine Park to get to the water and steep hill at Ogilvie when you exit.


River needs to be cleaned up.
