I dont like the way alltrails rates or tells you what you can do. This is not two stars. The Little Betsie access is from Green Lakes SW side where theres a launch. Kayak or canoe or trolling motor is the way to go. The river is slow and remote and an awesome getaway. Absoultely no houses or roads once in the TC state forest. Pull out at the Grass Lake campsite dam. Grass Lake is great fiahing i hear. Bird watching is good too.
