River Trip #1
Cornish Park, Algonquin to Fox River Shores Forest Preserve Boat Ramp – 3.5 miles
This season’s river trips starts out easy with the shortest trip of the series. After a brief paddling skills review and safety talk, we’ll put in from Cornish Park. We’ll start out paddling in shallow water with occasional riffles as we pass by riverfront homes on Algonquin’s south side.
The bluffs of Buffalo Park will rise up on the right bank and fall away as we pass the ancient river terrace that is now the Brunner Family Forest Preserve. The trip will end at Fox River Shores Forest Preserve Boat Ramp where we’ll help load the boats and gear.
