This trip has been the traditional spring opener for PSC for over twenty years. Come join us on the "Two Steves Trip" for an early outing to limber up those rusty canoe muscles and joints.   Because of the time of year and cold weather, you must bring a dump bag with extra clothing.  PFDs are required.  Canoe registrations (WUS stickers) are occasionally checked  by DNR.  We will paddle from Glacial Park to Spring Grove. 

DIRECTIONS: Take Route 12 (Rand Road) north through the town of Fox Lake to the intersection of Route 31 & Route 12. Continue straight on Tyron Grove Road a short way to Keystone Road and turn left (S) to the Park.  We will carshift at 10:00 a.m.  Bring lunch, water, coffee or whatever moves you.  Kids and dogs are welcome.  Occasionally, this trip gets cancelled due to the creek being frozen.  If you don't provide an accurate contact number and we have to cancel, you will not be notified.
