8322 Blomberg Road. "The Kishwaukee River south branch from Oak Ridge to Blackhawk Springs is definitely for only canoes--narrow, winding, trees down, and so shallow at times it is only inches deep where you have to get out on foot. After crossing under Perryville Bridge into Blackhawk Springs (posted on walk bridge), the south & north branches join and the river becomes deeper and wider."
