"Connecting paddlers through safe and fun group events"
Date(s): April 17, 2016
Leader: Paul Clifford
Co-Leader: Ray Ziemer
Location: "3 Diamonds" to Knoch Knolls, Naperville
Skill Level: Advanced Beginner
Category: Day Trip
Details: A fun paddle through downtown Naperville along the Riverwalk and south through the greenways of residential areas. Higher water levels can push a beginner paddle to advanced in a few spots. If in doubt, contact leaders.
We plan to stop at Pioneer Park for lunch and finish up at Knoch Knolls Park, about a 6-7 mile paddle. You may want to visit the nature center at Knoch Knolls which emphasizes the area's history and water resources.
Car shift at 9:30 from the “Three Diamonds” put-in at the intersection of Hidden Spring and Stauffer Rds., Naperville. From Ogden Ave. Rte 34 go south on River Rd. across RR tracks and turn left onto Hidden Spring. Follow to Stauffer and the dead-end at Will-o-way Commons.
