Rocktown Adventures has many opportunities for you to Gear Up & Head Out this fall
From the Fox to the Rock and a few other rivers in between, our Fall paddle group outings include all the outdoor equipment you need, as well as a refresher on paddling strokes and safety, experienced guides, a relaxed social setting for you to meet like-minded people and the opportunity to take on new challenges and outdoor adventures.
Please keep in mind that when paddling later in the year, it is important to pay attention to the combined air and water temperature. The baseline is 120 degrees combined. If it is lower than that, always have some protective clothing on in case of immersion. It rarely happens, but it is important to be prepared for this potential occurrence. Our main concern is that when you paddle, you dress for the water temperature. If you would like to join Rocktown Adventures for a Fall paddle, we are going out on the below dates:
OCTOBER 3: SUGAR RIVER
OCTOBER 4: KISHWAUKEE RIVER
OCTOBER 11: FOX RIVER W/ KANE COUNTY FOREST PRESERVE NATURALIST
OCTOBER 19: TURTLE CREEK
Register for any of these experiences by clicking the event listing (above) or visiting our events page. Please give us a call at (815) 636-9066 or drop by the store in Rockford, IL if you have any questions about these events or anything related to Fall paddling. We will run multiple shuttles for our upcoming Fall paddle outings, to minimize personal interaction in our shuttle vehicle, so launch time will take a little longer than usual. All equipment is disinfected and cleaned prior to going out so you can be ensured of safe and clean gear.
There’s still two months left in paddle season and plenty of time to experience the outdoors on the water. We hope to see you on an adventure this Fall!
