Canoe Trips: Reed's Canoe Trips provide people of all ages (minimum age 3 and minimum weight 35 pounds) with “an adventure close to home.” The three trips we offer range in length from approximately 2 hours to a full 6 hours on the water, and are suitable for either new or experienced canoeists. Since the Kankakee River is located only an hour south of Chicagoland, even our longest trip will fit into a one-day outing!
