Paris Bridge Natural Area

Canoeing & Kayaking Canoeing & Kayaking at Paris Bridge Natural Area
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.
