Very peaceful and quiet area, no traffic noise at all. Saw very few houses either. Just us and nature. John and Molly are great! John gave us tips on navigating rivers which can have unexpected obstacles. We even had a chance to practice them when we encountered a beaver dam that almost completely blocked the river! Both John and Molly are fun and easy-going, will paddle with them anytime.

Great time on the Rum. Beautiful relaxing and sometimes exciting trip from Rum River North County Park to Rum River Central Regional Park. Takes about 4 hrs, and you leave wanting even more. Very nice to have the kayaks dropped off at the start and picked up at the end.
