Council Hill to Galena
Trip Length: 3.5 to 4 Hours
Experience Level: Intermediate
Launching Point: Wilderness Landing
Return Point: Dockside in Galena
When the water is up, this section of the river provides some of the best kayaking. Often the water is low enough that you will have to navigate around rocks or the occasional sandbar. The faster moving water with patches of shallows also makes for some great Small Mouth Bass fishing. So if you are looking to fish on your trip, this is our best option!
Also, during this trip you will find the river is funneled to a narrow pass, where the water speeds up and there is a small drop. The small drop is easy, but you will get a little splash which feels great on a hot summer day.
This trip is an extension our Buck Hill to Galena trip and requires a 15 minute longer ride. So there will be a small wait while we drop off paddlers at Buck Hill before we take you to Council Hill.
