September 11, 2016. Kayak trip from Baumann Park in Cherry Valley to Seth Atwood Park near Milford. Took about 4 hours. Beautiful and scenic. Fall colors just barely beginning. Water level at Perryville was 5.95 feet at the time. Nice flow and depth to the river. I didn't bottom out at any time. When I solo kayak I have been successful getting an Uber driver to take me back to my car. I have T-mobile and could not get reception at Seth Atwood. Fortunately, some other kayakers gave me ride to Blackhawk park (where they started) and I was able to get an Uber ride back to Baumann (about $7 chrage).

I like this segment better than Belevidere to Cherry Valley. But both segments are awesome. This is a great river. The people who live along and near it take a lot of pride in this river. It is deserved.
