This is a slow stretch of river - easy canoeing. After about 2 hours you see Curran Park Campground, there is easy access and it could be the start or finish of a shorter trip. After passing the golf course, keep right to pass an obstruction at the Water Treatment Plant, on 26th St.

This is a deceptively long trip thanks to the twisting course of the river, especially in slow water.
