Paddle down the Father of Waters from St. Cloud to Clearwater. This canoe route was used by Native Americans for centuries and later by missionaries and explorers like Zebulon Pike, Henry Schoolcraft and Father Hennepin. The Mississippi Valley along this stretch has maintained much of its “wilderness” appearance due to being designated a Minnesota Wild and Scenic River in 1973. We may see variety of native plants and wildlife.
We will paddle 10 - 12 miles downstream from St. Cloud to Clearwater. The trip will take 4 -6 hours depending on river and weather conditions and paddler experience. There are no significant rapids on this stretch of the river, although currents may present a challenge to inexperienced paddlers. Participants should have some basic experience using a canoe or kayak. Both types of watercraft will be used for the trip.
