WILBARGER PADDLING TRAIL

Full Day – 6 to 8 Hours

This trip is not for beginners.  The Wilbarger trail can be a challenging full day on the water for those looking to cover a lot of miles.  Although there are no rapids or portages, slow water conditions and strong southern head winds can make for a long day of paddling.  Very commonly done as a 2 day camping trip or for training scouts who are preparing for big water adventures such as the Northern Tier.
