check out this link and view the 8 mile paddle - http://wisdells.net/outdoor-recreation/where-we-go/paddling-the-upper-dells/
This is what I would like to do on Sunday. We can decide if we want to do the 7.5 mile loop or the 8 mile loop. I don't know how long it will take but since we don't have to shuttle cars, that will save us time putting in.
If anyone wants to carpool from Madison, let me know -[masked]-2929.
We will meet at 10 a.m. at the put in site using the directions and map on the link:
Go downtown then run left on river road, then left again on Illinois Ave. There you’ll find parking along the road right on the river bank with an easy launch for paddlers. This spot also keeps paddlers far enough away from the Dam to cause much worry.
We should be able to take breaks so bring some food along. Also bring plenty of warm clothing and a PFD. The water is cooling off and a PFD may save your life in this river.
Afterwards, we can see how we feel and possibly stop somewhere for dinner.
