Lower St. Louis River Trips. Approx. Total Trip Time 2 and 1/2 hours
When the Upper St. Louis River gets too low for rafting, we run the Lower St. Louis River through Jay Cooke St. Park. Since much of this section flows through narrow canyons it can only be rafted safely at summer flows. Whether it’s late in the summer or a dry summer, it’s lower Louis time!
The Lower St. Louis sports technical class III rapids and features several rapids that are three to four-foot drops. The steep-walled sections of river provide excellent scenery. Since this trip covers fewer river miles, we include additional adventures within your trip!
