The water level was good, with a steady, gentle current. The Pine River is part of the Wisconsin Wild Rivers, and is stunning with peaceful, untouched woods and wilderness on both sides. We saw a ferret(or something like it??), and a bald eagle.
There are parts of the Pine River where rapids and more rocks are encountered, but this stretch had just a few boulders, and a couple places where the water was more "riffly". Very nice for beginners and people like me who want NO white water!!
A few trees down, but the river is quite wide, and easy to just keep going through. It was a beautiful, relaxing trip where you could paddle or just let the river take you, and enjoy the view!
The take out is actually only a 1/4 mile down the road on the right side of "N", so we could do it with only one car, and walk back! There is a sign that says "Oxbow Take-out". Also, when you are on the river, there is a bright orange little arrow, and a brown sign with yellow paddles on it that tell you where the take out is. Very nice! You'll have to carry your boat up a small hill when taking out.
