Leader: Russell Block
Location:  Wiegand Park Naperville to Eaton Park Plainfield
Skill Level:  Beginner
Category:  Paddling
Meet at Wiegand Park at 9:00 to unload your boat and gear. Car shuttle promptly at 9:30 am. This stretch of the river is rated beginner and the trip will be about 7-8 miles long. Finish time is estimated at 2:00 but may be sooner or later based on time to complete the car shift, river and wind conditions and other factors.

You will need your own boat, paddle and PFD. Bring a waterproof dump bag with a set of dry clothes (just in case).  Bring water and a snack/lunch as we may take a short break about halfway through the trip.

Wear quick dry/fleece clothing.

A PFD (lifejacket) must be worn on the trip.

No alcohol is allowed on PSC trips.
