We will arrive at the outfitters at 9am and be in line for the 9:30 Shuttle.
It will be apx 35 to 45 minute drive from Spirit Mountain to the outfitters.
We are going to offer 2 routs.
Stone Bridge; is a 4hr trip it starts out as basic river kayaking somewhat like you would expect if canoeing The rout will take you across 2 small lakes and the last 1/4 of the rout will have Class 1 rapids. This is one of the easiest routs offered. $30 per person for a group of 5. Consider brining something to eat and drink with you on this rout.

Class 2 rapids; This is 1 1/2 ~ 2 hour trip I am told that if you are comfortable with canoeing and in average shape you won't have a problem with this kayaking rout. $24 per person for a grope of 5.

If you are experience they also offer the Hwy 13 Rout, this rout has class 3 rapids. $55 per person.

You will need to contact Brule River Canoe Rental and let them know you are coming and what rout you will be taking, they did not say anything about reservations or making a deposit but it would help if thay know how many are coming.

Camping
We are staying at Spirit Mountain camp ground witch overlooks Duluth.
Saturday at 6pm we will have dinner at my camp sight I will provide Burgers Brats and buns, pleas bring a dish to share. We will probably pass the hat for fire wood $1 should cover it for the night.

Spirit Mountain offers; Zip Line, Alpine Coaster, Great View and is close to Canal Park.
Make plans with other members to share a sight. You will need to contact Spirit Mountain and make your own reservations. Ask to be close to sight #16.

    We had a lot of fun. The Brule River was amazing, the leaves where starting to turn so it was like being immersed in a painting. We had a little rain the night before so the river was the write depth for kayaking. The staff at Brule River Rental are great to work with.
    The HWY 2 Route is a great for new-bees, this was my first time kayaking I was very comfortable with the route but never bored.
    Spent some time playing tourist in Duluth Hit a few restaurants.

    I might go if I don't work that weekend. I did the stretch from Stone Bridge to the WI DNR Campground just south of Brule earlier in the season and plan to continue upstream to Superior this time. The WI DNR Campgrounds are non reserve, first come first serve, self register. Both campgrounds were pretty open when I was there. The water was low making going over the dozen rapids difficult as I had to get out and push the kayaks several times. Water was below knee deep in some places.

    I am in sight #16. This weekend is also the Duluth Air Show, normally the campground dos not fill up but if you are thinking of a Hotel I would make my reservations sooner than later.
