The Kinnickinnic River watershed is characterized by scenic bluff lands, rare oak savanna, original prairie, farm land, white pine forest, wooded coulees, sedge meadows, rare and endangered plant species, beautiful stands of white pines and plenty of open space and scenic vistas. Its feeder creeks are cold and clean, containing wild native brown trout, important spawning areas, wetlands, and many springs arising from under picturesque limestone outcroppings.

Below the City of River Falls, the Kinnickinnic River flows through the “Lower Kinni canyon” that begins about a mile below the city. Continuing approximately 10 miles to the St. Croix River where it flows into the delta of the Kinnickinnic State Park. It’s high cliffs, shaded rapids and numerous moss and fern clad rock outcroppings provide habitat for abundant wildlife and numerous plants and vegetation (some of which are on the threatened list).

Imagine the enchantment of kayaking through the Kinni River! Enjoy a beautiful relaxing paddle through deciduous & conifer tunnels of the Kinni Canopy and trout waters seeing Mother Nature at here finest. Enjoy live encounters with Great Blue Heron, Bald Eagles, deer, turkeys, beaver, otters, song birds, trout and other estuary life that thrive in this unique ecosystem! Cowboy Up Indiana Jones!
