Co-Leader: Sue Allman
Location: West Branch of the DuPage River (St. Charles Rd  to Mack Rd.)
Skill Level: Advanced Beginner
Category: Day
Trip                                                                             Details: Regretfully, I have decided to cancel this trip due to Covid 19.  While paddling poses no increased risk of acquiring the disease, car shifts are a petri dish.  Under the current circumstances, it would be the height of irresponsibility to conduct a car shift.

 Please keep an eye on the PSC schedule.  I have a couple of ideas for no-shuttle trips, including the Confluence Loop and possibly some couples’ trips, in which couples would shuttle themselves.

 Needless to say, when this situation changes, I will be scheduling trips again.

We will be paddling the West Branch of the DuPage River from St.Charles Rd. to Mack Rd. This section is peaceful and senic, but it is narrow and may have obstructions that you will need to maneuver or portage around. This trip is appropiate for anyone who has reliable paddling skills.

Contact the trip leader for information. Steve (630) 665-5707

Initial sign-up must be done through this page, but until the PSC website is fully functional, all updates will be done by personal e-mail from one of the trip leaders.

I ask that all paddlers sign up. Please do not invite a guest without signing him or her up through the website.
