Visit the Kinni

There are many ways and places to visit along the Kinnickinnic River. From the upper Kinni streams that meander through prairies and farmland to the lower canyon that surrounds you with steep bluffs and a fast-flowing river. Conservation initiatives are why this river still feels so wild.
