Traveling Ted is a blog that takes readers along on my adventures hiking, canoeing, skiing, and international backpacking. Many blogs focus on one aspect of backpacking, but I tackle both the outdoor adventure side and international exploration as well.

Sharing is caring!

Kayaking the Kickapoo River

The meandering Kickapoo River is one of the prettiest rivers in Wisconsin. The Kickapoo River runs through the Driftless Area, which is named because the area was never covered during the Ice Age by glaciers. The headwaters are found near Ontario, Wisconsin, and it flows south to its confluence with the Wisconsin River at Wauzeka. Near the headwaters the river is characterized with many fun rifles and beautiful limestone cliffs.

Wisconsin River Outings runs trips on both the Kickapoo and the Wisconsin River.


The goal of Traveling Ted is to inspire people to outdoor adventure travel and then provide tips on where and how to go.
