Ready for an urban adventure? Starting in Peltier Lake you can kayak or canoe 15 miles to Long Lake and 8 miles more to the Mississippi. It takes about 3 hours to paddle from Long Lake to the Riverfront Regional Park Boat Launch just south of 694 on East River Road.
North of Long Lake can be a relatively mild paddle, but the water speed picks up south of Long Lake where some paddling challenges can be found.
More information about the trail and latest conditions can be found Rice Creek Watershed Districts site.
