Class II Wapsipinicon River, IA

Wapsipinicon River Water Trail (Twin Ponds to Mississippi River)

The Wapsipinicon River meanders and frequently changes its mind as it braids its way through limestone cliffs and lowlands, on its route to the Mississippi River. The Wapsipinicon’s meanderings create a number of alternative channels, some of which end in shallow dead ends. Paddlers and other boaters should follow the strongest current when water levels are low. (Iowa DNR)
