Details:  Join us for a fun trip through this narrow, winding section of the West Branch, mostly through the DuPage Forest Preserves.

This is a "Soup Trip" so plan to bring a can of soup you can add to the communal pot at the Winfield lunch stop.

Car shuttle 9:30 a.m. from the put-in at St. Charles Road.

Check here and in your email for updates a few days before, as log jms, water levels and weather always actor in.

Directions to St. Charles Road Put-in for the West Branch DuPage River

 Take IL Rte. 64 North Avenue to the traffic signal at Prince Crossing Road – it’s a mile east of IL Rte. 59 or 8 miles  west of I-355 or IL Rte 53.

Turn north on Prince Crossing and travel one short block to St. Charles Rd.; head east to the bridge over the river. You can unload and launch on either side, upstream or downstream – all are equally muddy!
