Friends of Rowan Creek Location

Rowan and Hinkson Creeks drain a 60-square-mile area of Columbia County, Wisconsin to the Wisconsin River and eventually the Mississippi.

The watershed includes portions of the Columbia County townships of Arlington, Dekorra, Lowville, and Leeds, with the village of Poynette lying squarely in the middle. Four creek miles comprise a Class 1 trout stream, with the remainder designated Class 2. A hiking and cross country ski trail provide public recreation, and a variety of wildlife call the watershed home.
