Huron River Watershed Council
The Huron River 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 Michigan's Lower Peninsula. From the rapids at Delhi and Dexter to the placid flat water at the entrance to Great Lake Erie, a variety of paddling experiences await you. For kayaking, canoeing, fishing on a fly, and other freshwater pursuits, follow the Water Trail to learn what others already know-- the Huron River is a Michigan treasure worth exploring. The Huron River Water Trail is a consortium of interested group and communities, and is a project of the Huron River Watershed Council and RiverUp!

The Huron River Water Trail reconnects individuals, families, and communities to the river's recreational, economic, ecological, historical, and cultural values. The Water Trail is a focal point for recreational activities while boosting local economies and adding a richness and breadth to historical and cultural events along the river. The Water Trail will directly serve the half million residents of the watershed, the larger community of southeast Michigan, and tourists to the Great Lakes region. All ages and all abilities will be able to enjoy the river through the Water Trail. The river will be more accessible to all socioeconomic groups through fishing, paddling, walking, viewing, swimming, and educational opportunities.
The goals of the Huron River Water Trail are to stimulate local economies, improve recreational access and opportunities, encourage physical activity, improve community pride and encourage partnerships and collaboration, make the river and communities healthier, and highlight cultural and historical significance.
