Length: 4.5 miles - ~2.5 hrs
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 level 6.5*. 7 to 8* is a better run but stay to the center to avoid occasional fallen tree.
Launch at Ehlers Park one mile north of Saukville on Hwy W. Natural put-in with parking 30 yards from the river at the north entrance. Scenic picnic area and portable toilet.
Take out at the signed Town of Grafton canoe landing from the river, look right (west) to see new dock.
Shuttle back to Ehlers Park via County Hwy O to Saukville, then east on County Hwy W over the Milwaukee River, then north 4 miles to Ehlers Park north entrance.
