Waterway Trail

Directions: The Yorkville canoe launch in Bicentennial Riverfront Park is located on the Fox River on Hydraulic Street, east of Route 47. Silver Springs Fish & Wildlife Area can be accessed by traveling from Yorkville on Route 47 then turning south on Fox Road. The park entrance will be visible in about five miles.

Notes: This is a great trip for beginners and families with children. Youth groups can spend the night at Silver Springs Fish & Wildlife Area (contact the park for information). This is a shallower stretch of the Fox River with several islands to paddle around and explore, and this is also a good trip for bird watching.  Freeman’s Sports rents canoes and kayaks, and offers transportation between Yorkville and Silver Springs Fish & Wildlife Area. The Yak Shack rents kayaks.

Always check United States Geological Survey (USGS) water data before your trip.
