 The 3rd annual Aukiki River Walk is scheduled for April 30, 2022. This is a self-paced hike, and you are welcome to start anytime between 9 and 11 AM. The walk will be presented by the Kankakee Valley Historical Society and Porter County Parks and Recreation (PCPR). This 1.5-mile self-guided hike will allow you to set your own pace and start time.

The trail will be well marked and will have stops along the way where you will be able to access short historical videos using your smart phone (camera or QR code reader required). Along the way, PCPR naturalists will be stationed to provide you with more information about the nature of the Kankakee River. Included will be information about the flora and fauna of the marsh. Also, a PCPR naturalist will be on hand to explain the conservation practices of the

KVHS wetland restoration project the society is working on. Tickets can be purchased at the Kankakee Valley Historical Society website or purchased at the gate.

The trail will follow a rough dirt lane through the woods. Please bring insect repellant, good shoes, weather-appropriate clothing, and any other personal items you may need for a hike.
