*This is a water trail intended for paddle sports - it is not a hiking trail* This section of the Huron River is good for novice paddlers as there is not much current making it possible to paddle both directions. There are a couple canoe/kayak liveries along this route as well. You will paddle through woods and meadows along with some private residences. Birds and other wildlife are abundant for the watchful eye.Show more
