Paris Bridge Natural Area/Access
Paris Bridge Natural Area is a refuge with canoe access to the Wapsipinicon River. Though parking is very limited at this location, it is a great access to the river - located between the lowhead dams in Troy Mills and Central City. From this point, it is a leisurely float downstream to Pinicon Ridge Park just above Central City. This refuge is also the drop point for the 2-hour canoe trip shuttle from Pinicon Ridge Park.  The canoe access is near the historic 1876 Paris Bridge. 


The Paris Bridge Natural Area is located at 5301 Sutton Rd, Central City, IA 52214. For a map of the area, click here.
