Class II-III Fox River, WI

Kaukauna 1000 Islands (Highway 55 Main Street to CTH ZZ)

Bedrock riverbed creates sweet waves for surfs and spins. The first two parts of this run are heavily 'citified' (cement and stonework banks, highway and railway crossings, buildings and industry surrounding), while the lower third part is braided channels between wooded islands within a nature preserve, having an amazingly 'wilderness' feel to it.
