walk-in access opens on Turtle
tcwd, pARTNERS create launch for canoes, kayaks that connects to Cedar River State Water Trail
AUSTIN, Minn. — July 19, 2022 — For years, locals have paddled the meandering route of Turtle Creek on Austin’s west side to enjoy the stream in the city and use it as a connection to the Cedar River State Water Trail.
Easy access for launching a canoe or kayak on the creek, however, has been a challenge.
Thanks to a multi-agency partnership that started two years ago, the public now has a walk-in access in Austin for launching canoes and kayaks on Turtle Creek to float downstream to the Cedar River or paddle upstream to enjoy the wooded hillsides on the city’s west side.
The new rock-surface access and large parking area now is available on the northwest side of the 12th Street Southwest (MN Hwy. 105) bridge over Turtle Creek.
