    This trip is posted. I need a confirmation on the date. You listed it on a Wednesday, which didn't sound right, so I chose to move it to the 31st because of other events on the 17th and 24th.

    Category:  Soup Trip
    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 jams, water levels and weather always factor 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!
