Your float trip portion will be on the crystal clear Courtois Creek. The Courtois River offers creek water, with a few more adventurous turns, than the Meramec River trips. Like most Missouri waterways, the depth of the Courtois fluctuates. Just as dry land has peaks and valleys, so do Missouri stream-beds. One instant you’re in water to your ankles, and a step later, you could be wet to your shoulders. Water temps change with the intensity of the sun and air temperature.
Be sure to print out your Trail Maps and have a dry, safe place to store them!
