Paddle 7 miles down the winding Kickapoo River along rock out-croppings and through diverse vegetation. The river route begins at Bridge 7 and ends at Bridge 14, the Transition Area.

Road Bike 15 miles through the hilly driftless area. The route takes you through the valleys and over the ridge, in one of Wisconsin’s most scenic rural landscapes.  Steep climbs and rapid descents provide the ride of a lifetime!  All cyclists must observe Wisconsin traffic laws. Helmets required. Drafting prohibited.
