Beginner Trips

There's a lot of great water for beginning paddlers in the QCs. The QCWT has 5 sloughs of calm backwater [LeClaire Canal, Campbell's Island Slough, Sylvan Slough, Credit Island Slough, and Andalusia Slough] ideal for those less experienced. Here are some suggested trips (launch sites identified by number on the QCWT map):

RiverWay Water Trails

Experience Mississippi River as it was first discovered. . . while paddling!

The Quad Cities area is rich with water. Paddling conditions on the Mississippi and Rock Rivers are perfect for multi-day excursions with camping access, afternoon urban getaways, and getting in touch with nature for all levels of paddlers.
