Water Trail – Twin Rivers

NEW Kayak Trail!  Click here for interactive site: https://twinriverswatertrail.org/#/

photo of kayak launch distancesThe Twin Rivers extend from Shoto to Two Rivers on the West Twin, and Mishicot to Two Rivers on the East Twin, creating a large “U” shaped trail. The entire length is about 20 miles.

The West Twin is flat and calm. The East Twin flows more rapidly, and can be a challenge when water is high due to flow and downed trees. During low water, the East is shallow and can be a challenge to paddle in mid-summer.

Both rivers are scenic and accessible with minimal development. 

Woodland Dunes has a kayak launch at the end of its Cattail Trail and two kayak carts that can be wheeled on our boardwalk. Our launch also has a rack for temporary boat storage. When on the West Twin, look for our Observation Tower as a landmark if wanting to utilize our dock for exiting the Water Trail.

Current launches:
West Twin: County launch at Shoto on Hwy VV, Woodland Dunes and Veteran’s Park in Two Rivers
East Twin: Paddler’s Park at the end of 27th Street in Two Rivers and Roger Street Fishing Village.
