The Huron River National Water Trail is a 104-mile inland paddling trail connecting people to the river's natural environment, its history and the communities it touches in the southeast area of Michigan's Lower Peninsula. It flows through protected natural areas, state and regional parks, quaint towns like Milford, Dexter, and Flat Rock, and bustling river communities like Ann Arbor and Ypsilanti. The Huron River offers a variety of paddling experiences, from rapids in the middle section to the placid flat water at the entrance to Lake Erie. Visit the Huron River valley for a day-trip, a weekend, or consider a week-long through-paddle at one of four canoe campgrounds accessible only from the Water Trail. For kayaking, canoeing, fishing on a fly, and other freshwater pursuits, follow the Huron River National Water Trail to learn what others already know--the Huron River is a Michigan treasure worth exploring.
The Huron River National Water Trail is a consortium of interested groups and communities, and is a project of the Huron River Watershed Council. While the River flows through many communities from Milford to Lake Erie, Water Trail visitor information is available at HRWC's Ann Arbor address, listed here.
