Urban “backyards” most of the way. The river runs alongside a road for first 30 min. Wind from N is favorable.

This route mostly class #1 flat water with a two-foot drop at level 6.7*. After that, an occasional class 1.5 mild rapids.

You may scrape bottom under 6.5*. 7 to 8* it is a better run but stay to the center to avoid occasional fallen tree.

Launch at Ehlers Park on County W one mile north of Saukville. Natural put-in with parking is 30 yards from the river at the South entrance, 60 yards from the river at the north end. Scenic picnic area and portable toilet are at both entrances.

Take out at a signed Town of Grafton canoe landing on Hwy O, 1 mile south of Saukville. Parking is 30 yards from river.

No toilet facilities.

Shuttle via County Hwy O to Saukville, then east to County Hwy W, then north 4 miles to Ehlers Park.
