Fur Traders River Run Rock River Nature At the Confluence South Beloit Illinois Wisconsin (8) (Custom)Please note: Due to flood damage at Nature At The Confluence landing, Rocktown Adventures will be using the John Rose Canoe Launch in downtown Beloit for this paddle. 


This six mile guided paddle, which traces the route fur traders used back in the day when the Rock River acted like a Commerce Highway, will launch at 9:00 AM. Enjoy the wooded scenery and wildlife on a leisurely paddle as you follow the Fur Traders route down to the Macktown Trading post, where a shuttle will be waiting to take you back to the launch site at Nature at the Confluence. You can expect to be back at the launch site around Noon. There is one portage required on this trip at the Rockton Dam.

The price for this experience is $50 and includes kayak, paddle, pfd, guide, shuttle, and a good time. Price is $20 for those that have their own vessel. Trip is limited to 10 participants (we may be able to handle more but won’t know until we get closer to the event date) so don’t delay.
