COME WITH US & SEE WHAT HIKERS CAN’T SEE!

This trip is not to be missed! If you have been to this wonderful state park you know how beautiful it is.  With its majestic St. Peters sandstone bluffs towering over the Illinois river to the canyons carved out deep along the shore line this state park has been consistently rated #1 in Illinois. 
For this trip we will be kayaking for aprox. 3 hours.  We will kayak back into LaSalle canyon and Illinois canyon(water level dependent).  The views from the water are amazing!    Wear water shoes(no flip flops).  We will launch from lone point shelter, which has plenty of parking.  This is an out and back trip which means we will be returning to our starting point.  No shuttle is needed.

boat, paddle, and life jacket(required to be worn) are included
