Skill Level:   Beginner
Category:  Day trip
Details:  Join with Stateline Paddlers on this annual November trip of Turtle Creek in Wisconsin. A perfect fall paddle (about 11 miles) through a tree-lined landscape & under the outstanding Stone Arch Bridge. Bring a drink, lunch, PFD, dump bag and dress appropriately for the water & weather. 10:00 car shift.  The launch is at O'Riley Road about 400 meters (1/4 mile) east of the bridge in a small forests preserve on the north side of the creek.  Take out will be in Sweet Allyn Park on Highway "J" east  of Beloit.

If you need directions to the launch, Take I-39 North to I-43, get off at Rt 140 go north about 1/2 mile to Townline Rd., then East about 4 miles to O'Riley Rd and turn North.  The road turns right after the bridge, and the launch is at the curve in the road. The O'Riley Rd. sign was missing last time I was there.  If you see a dead end sign just passed a road that only goes left, you are at O"Riley Rd.
