Buckhill to Galena

Experience Level: Novice
Starting point: Nuts Outdoors 336 Spring St. Galena, IL (bus pickup location & retail store)
Launching Point: Wilderness Landing
Return Point: Dockside in Galena
You start at our store location. We pick you up on a bus and take you to our private launch site. Our shortest trip is great for beginners or those who just want a couple of hours to float downstream. The trip has a little bit of fast-moving water to start but it slows down quickly for the rest of the trip. During your 5-mile paddle, you will see wildlife, fish, and beautiful rural scenery.
When you return to the dock you will be just a 1 1/2 blocks walk from where you parked your car at our shop.
